The Delivery Models Working Group is dedicated to the applied research on the technology-community relationship throughout the different phases of rural electrification projects.
The concept of Delivery Models
The success of rural electrification projects depends on a variety of factors that are not merely technical. Social, economical, environmental, institutional and cultural variables, all contribute to the sustainability of a project and should be taken into account in order for it to be successful.
To address the complex issue of sustainability of rural renewable energy systems, the concept of Delivery Models has emerged. A project’s delivery model can be defined as:
“The methodology with which a project attempts to achieve sustainability and scale up in a specific context by addressing the different variables that contribute to it”.
Goal and objectives
The group aims to provide methodologies and guidelines for implementing sustainable electrification projects with locally manufactured small wind turbines.
- To spread the knowledge about Delivery Models and make it accessible for your application
- To develop suggestions for monitoring and monitoring projects
- To systematize and disseminate information throughout the Wind Empowerment network
What are we working on now?
- We are developing a Practical Guide for Initial Diagnosis so that member organizations can access and interpret the needs of the community properly
- We are developing a Delivery Models Manual based on long study
- Recording short videos explaining the concept of Delivery Models (DM) and their application in locally manufactured small wind turbines.

How to participate
From any area of knowledge or language you may come, if you think you can contribute to our objectives,
feel free to PARTICIPATE!
You can participate by:
- Conducting interviews with community leaders and/or social organizations involved in small-scale wind projects (field work, interviews and interpretation)
- Reporting projects (past or ongoing)
- Contacting us to support our current projects
- Sharing yours ideas in the Group’s Discussion Forum
The production of knowledge is shared, so you can use our studies for research work in your university, school, or what interests you
