 As the Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S.A. is approaching people often consider things they are thankful for. This may include things some individuals take for granted such as: running water, electricity, a car, etc.

We, at PowerCom, are thankful that we were able to be part of the Haiti Rural Energy Forum; it was hosted by the Government of Haiti. They discussed important topics, such as:

  • Governmental challenges and strategies to increase the availability of sustainable electricity for rural parts of Haiti
  • · Views of National Experts on the current status of rural energy
  • · The effects of wood fuel and household energy in rural areas
  • · International energy projects and is it feasible to replicate those projects in Haiti
  • · Innovative solutions to increase energy access
  • · And more

What is the Haiti Rural Energy Forum?

This was a free event that was by invitation only. It was hosted by Government of Haiti and Électricité d'Haïti (EdH).  Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiated this event and it’s supported by The Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and World Bank Group.

It was an event where Governmental challenges were discussed. National experts gave their viewpoint of the energy status and international projects were considered as possible solutions to Haiti’s plan to make energy available throughout the country.

This is what the event host says about the energy forum in Haiti:
“Haiti is now the first Caribbean nation eligible to access game-changing funding from the Scaling up Renewable Energy Program (SREP). This will provide the Government of Haiti with the necessary resources to prepare the enabling environment for private investors to enter Haiti and develop wind, solar, hydro and biomass projects. Multiple other sources of funding and support are available from entities such as the Government of Norway, USAid, and others.”

PowerCom’s Solution and the role it played in the Haiti Rural Energy Forum

We feel honored to be a part of the Haiti Rural Energy Forum. The part we had was to ensure the event ran smoothly and quickly. By utilizing PowerCom’s wireless voting solution, also known as Audience Response System (ARS), the event coordinators were able to ask specific questions for the audience to answer. The ARS solution helped speed up the process. By counting the votes quickly and in real-time it allowed the presenters the opportunity to optimize the time they were given.
By utilizing a keypad solution to answer the questions, the presenters and audience were able to connect with one another. The presenters were able to expand on the topics that the audience wanted to hear more about.
