Description

An electricity access health facility database

in Africa (EHFDB). The EHFDB incorporates (i) Geographic locations of health centres (ii) the estimated electricity access for healthcare facilities, (iii) the estimated power requirements, (iv) the optimised PV and (v) battery size to meet these requirements, and the (vi) costs of the systems to be installed. Also, the db provides information about health facilities with access or no access to electricity.
