Abstract

The Evaluation of Off Grid Community Managed Renewable Energy Projects was undertaken as part of the Institutional Support Programme of the Malawi Renewable Energy Acceleration Programme (MREAP). This evaluation developed a set of 12 case studies covering the 3 regions of Malawi and included a range of renewable energy technologies (RETs) that are being used at the community and household level. These case studies were complemented by key informant interviews and a ‘round table’ with members of the Government of Malawi in March 2012. The analysis and lessons from this evaluation were designed to help inform the implementation of the MREAP itself, the ongoing development of grassroots level RET activities as well as the documentation of robust evidence and experiences that would help inform the possible development of a Renewable Energy Strategy for Malawi.
