Problems and Purpose

The Dominican Network for the Sustainable Development of Renewable Energies brings together more than 50 community micro hydro-power plants in the country with the purpose of coordinating the exchange of knowledge and resources for sustainable development among communities. Its main goal is to guarantee democratic and participatory access to electricity by ensuring the access of citizens to the economic means necessary to benefit from the sources of renewable energy in their localities. The framework of the network includes: supporting communities through the conception of the project, establishing a trained technical team for the maintenance of the micro-plants and setting up a fund for eventual reparations of the system. Additionally, REDSER provides financial support for initiatives that make use of the clean energy for self-managed social and productive projects.
