This webinar will introduce IEEE Smart Village and its various initiatives to achieve its vision. IEEE Smart Village has been striving to get basic electrical services to a million people in 5 years, in the most underserved regions of the world, through renewable energy sources. Its ultimate goal is to get electrical services to 50 million people in the next 10 years. However, IEEE Smart Village aims to go beyond just lighting and electrical services. Through its model of partnerships with local NGOs and Entrepreneurs, it strives to create local businesses and local jobs. Through its initiatives in education and community based solutions, it aims to create community development with lasting change. All these initiatives make IEEE Smart Village unique, in the sense that it is going "beyond the light bulb" to create truly Smart Villages around the world.
