Real-time Monitoring, Control and Payment Technology for Mini-grids: Rwanda Field Test Evaluation Report

Among the small number of mini-grids currently operational in Rwanda, in early 2016 none were known to make use of smart monitoring, control and payment technologies. Through its contribution to the ESCoBox research project, Practical Action Consulting (PAC) initiated a pilot test of an automated monitoring and control system on a small-scale mini-grid in Rwanda. This report presents some early findings from the first months of the system’s operation and recommendations based on the challenges faced during installation and early operation.
