Sustainable Technical/Business & Education Workshop set for July 30 in WA D.C.

The agenda and details of the CSI workshop are now available on the resources tab.

This year’s workshop has two main purposes:
(1) To introduce the overall CSI technical products-based sustainable business plan for Reliable Electricity initiative programs and answer questions from potential partners; and
(2) To present the goals, strategies and plans for a new community-based education model that builds on strong partnerships with multiple technical/educational NGO partners at the Posner Center for International Development.

Since formed in 2010, CSI has been steadily progressing to build a sustainable business model and educational model infrastructure to deploy in thousands of communities that are totally off-grid with little hope of electricity in the foreseeable future. The basis is a standard technical and sustainable business model designed to be quickly scalable to a large reach globally. IEEE being a global institution is an ideal vehicle to promote such a solution with open source designs and a documented business plan complete with standard operating procedures.

More information is available on the workshop’s agenda.
