Through a close relationship with the Ambassador from Gabon, H.E. Michael Moussa Adam, the TerraMarCo team has made significant headway in assisting the Gabonese government's goal of electrifying 30 villages currently inaccessible to electricity by 2016. This audacious goal will serve as a model for the rest of the Congo basin and of Africa.
In order to facilitate it, the TerraMarCo team connected the government of Gabon to the REFRESCH program, part of the University of MIchigan's 3rd Century initiative. The UM program, after extensive study, selected micro-hydro installations on the countries plentiful waterways as the fastest way to achieve success.
