Dear Blue Blue,

Solar dominates this week’s newsletter--from new breakthroughs in TPV and perhaps photosynthetics through studies on the impact of dust and wildlife to the continuing success of pay-as-you-go schemes in improving energy access. Not forgetting Tesla looking to achieve its ambition of providing a one stop shop for all things solar: batteries, panels and cars. 

At Smart Villages we welcome these advances, but hope solar does not overshadow other sources in the minds of scientists, investors, policymakers and, above all, consumers. In our workshops across the world, we see that villages have their own unique needs that aren't always met by solar power, so let's remember that hydro power, biomass, wind and other renewables--or a mix thereof--can also be sustainable solutions to energy access.
