CONSOLIDATING THE ELECTRICITY DELIVERY MODEL FOR THE AMAZONIA AND IMPROVING PROCESSES TO FACILITATE THE SUSTAINABILITY
Once the first phase of escalation of Luz en Casa Amazonia ended, we are developing a new project that brings our electricity service through third generation solar home systems with prepayment -which is regulated since summer 2018-, to 1,107 households by the Napo, Ucayali and Amazonas rivers basins, for which there are not electrification plans. We have also started 2 Centros Luz en Casa to give services in the basins added to our operation: Ucayali and Amazonas.
We have also improved our procedures to facilitate the sustainability of the action in the long term. Our partner in this project, the Technical University of Madrid, has carried out an analysis and an evaluation of the processes and procedures to boost the escalability of Luz en Casa Amazonia, and it has revised and implemented improvements in our service exploitation management system.
In addition, we are strenghtening our processes to consider international standards related to indigenous peoples rights. This aspect is essential for acciona.org, because we implement our projects in areas with many indigenous groups living in.
The project was co funded by AECID, through the 2018 call for subsidies to innovation actions for development.
