Impact Assessment for Micro Solar Dome- pilot project

NB Institute of Rural Technology – Client

Project: The Micro Solar Dome (MSD) illuminates the dark houses by daylight capturing during daytime, making it convenient for the dwellers to work inside their premises. Around 30 MSDs were installed in the houses of Lalbagh slum in Delhi. The project involved assessing the impact of such MSDs upon slum and rural livelihoods.

Our Role: ITP India had carried out the assessment by:

  • Conducting Field surveys and assessing the users’ feedback
  • Discussion with stakeholders on users’ feedback, scope of improvement, requirements to enable market penetration of MSD
  • Undertaking desk research on rural and slum lifestyle; traditional ways of meeting their energy needs;
  • Testing of MSD sample in labs and assessing its reliability
