Registration for Part 2 of our Open Source Webinar series is open now! We'll be back live on Tuesday, September 28th at 3pm CET (9am in New York, 4pm East Africa) with new panelists and new topics.

Why do people and companies in Energy Access make the conscious decision to use open source materials? This time around, the panelists will dive into a conversation about Open Source from the adopters point of view. If you have been considering using open source materials in your own work and want to hear how and why others choose to do the same, you'll definitely want to join.

  • Catherine Adelmann is manager and founder of Fosera. She holds a B.Eng. in Industrial Engineering and a M.Sc. in Brand & Sales Management.
  • Vaibhav Vaidya is CTO at Simusolar, working on productive use hardware, technical service design and business IT applications.
  • Mark van Niekerk is responsible for operational oversight in the local FRES companies primarily in Uganda and South Africa, and new Project Development.
