Top Ideas for Energy
In May 2016, Haïti Priorise held its fifteenth sector expert roundtable to discuss the best solutions to improve energy and electricity. Roundtable participants were asked to identify the strengths and weaknesses of current policy efforts and to propose actions they think should be prioritized as a means to improve energy and electricity in Haiti.
The most notable ideas with regard to nutrition and food security focused on electrifying schools in rural areas using solar kits, reducing electricity theft and fraud, establishing hybrid systems to increase distribution and production, using prepaid meters to improve billing and collection, developing policy to develop the renewable energy sector for suppliers and consumers, and using solar energy to electrify hospitals and other public spaces and buildings.
Notable attendees from the roundtable included : Jean Marcel Pinard, Electricité d’Haiti (EDH) ; Jean Robert Altidor, Bureau des mines et de l’énergie (BME) ; Lucine Lominy, World Bank.
