Mersha wants to know about the diesel engine that is used in off-grid areas?

Question from Mersha Bemnet Wondimagegnehu:

I am a lecturer at Addis Ababa Science and Technology University. Currently I am working on solar powered flour mill to alleviate small scale women farmers in off-grid area. I want technical help on the rating of the smallest diesel engine that is usually used in off-grid areas. I also want to hear about your experience if you have any thing similar in Eastern Africa.

Dear Mersha, please find some information about mills in the following energypedia article: https://energypedia.info/wiki/Grain_Mill It also includes some challenges faced in Senegal. Furthermore, this article about PV-diesel hybrid systems might be interesting for you (including experiences from Senegal and Kenya): https://energypedia.info/wiki/PV-Dies...

Please feel free to contribute your experiences to energypedia as well, for others to be able to learn from your challenges. Best regards, Johanna @energypedia
