Dubbed the low carbon emission clean energy technology transfer (LCET) programme, the project’s technology, will mostly be used to run small and medium-scale businesses.
Particularly, this programme has focused on the installation of the ultra-low head micro power systems in Kenya and Ethiopia as an inter-disciplinary solution in energy, climate change and sustainable development.
It involves recycling water from the tunnels within the irrigation scheme to produce energy which locals can use at low or no cost while keeping pollution at bay.
The technology had been in use in Japan and India. In Africa, it is currently in use only in Kenya and Uganda.
