Solar Energy for Rural Development
To develop knowledge about renewable energies and environmental issues
The aim of Cuba Solar is to develop knowledge about renewable energies and environmental issues in the whole educational system and to apply it in order to improve living conditions in communities. It organises courses and workshops, promotes research groups, edits books and contributes to improving the learning conditions in shools and universities.
Also projects are being developed to improve peoples’ living conditions and to achieve low energy solutions as well as using renewable energies to reduce environmental impact and to achieve low energy solutions.
Many demonstration projects are carried out. Most of them are related to the electrifi cation by renewable energies of local clinics, hospitals, schools, tourist centres, communities and other social facilities in isolated rural places. These projects have a high social impact. They allow children all over the country to access audiovisual and computer programs in primary school. They contribute to improving health care, including water supply and sanitation, living conditions and recreation for people in general, even in the most remote areas.
