EnerSHelF is a German-Ghanaian joint project in which experts from science and industry of the various disciplines work together on both technical and politico-economic questions to improve and disseminate marketable PV-based energy solutions for health facilities in Ghana. The overall objective of the project is to simultaneously improve access to health services (SDG 3) and sustainable energy (SDG 7) in Ghana.

The project will contribute to sustainable economic, environmental, and social development through an accelerated diffusion of integrative and reliable PV solutions to support an increase in the market share of renewable energy and thus strengthen the sustainability of the national energy system. In addition, improved energy access and reduced energy costs will allow for improved healthcare.
