Energy consumption is intrinsically interconnected with social and economic development since it is prerequisite for both to happen. Large amounts of inexpensive fossil energy have made it possible to build up industrial nations and welfare societies. Increased greenhouse gas emissions and environmental degradations are ecological consequences of this. However, developing countries use only a fraction of the energy of OECD countries. The costs for the small amount of, mainly inefficiently used traditional energy sources, burden the household excessively. Here modern energy sources, such as, electricity are expected to push development and modernize rural areas. Nevertheless, over 2 billion people worldwide have no adequate access to electrical energy. In Sub-Saharan Africa no more than 8% of rural households are connected to the grid, in Kenya 4.6% and in the study area, Suba District, only 0.5%. High-priced fossil energy fuels have filled this gap until now. 93% of the households use kerosene for lightning. A regenerative alternative to the inefficient, health endangering, environment damaging and cost-intensive energy use for; lightning, communication, as well as, drinking water supply, is therefore evaluated. Through a redesigned and locally adapted use of photovoltaic technology in OSRAM Energy Hubs, costs and amounts of energy services used in households, business and the fishing sector can be reduced with a simultaneously positive impact on development, economy, health and environment of the user and the region.
