Renewable energy for portable ICT technology

Neil Noble

I’m a research consultant and I’m looking into different energy solutions, specifically for scaled up mobile health projects. I was wondering if you had worked with any organisations in a similar capacity and would be able to provide me with any information on the successes and challenges of providing sustainable energy for portable ICT devices.

I’d be very grateful for any information or advice that you could provide.

Interesting examples can be found in UNEP publication "Greening the Blue Helmets", which reviews best practices from different peacekeeping missions around the world, including (but not limited to) energy generation for ICT installations.
