Energy from the Sun


The Coming Together radio series is designed for broadcast by local and community radio stations or it may be heard and downloaded from the web. It has been produced by OLSET and COL for use anywhere that people want to take action to help fight poverty and improve their lives, and in particular sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. // The “Energy from the Sun” programme looks at ways that solar technology can save money, resources and the environment. Kenyan ICT specialist Kennedy Onyango explains how adapted solar panels now power the cell phones and radios which have transformed the economic lives of Lake Shore communities. In South Africa we learn about solar ovens and visit a project where they are cooking using the power of the sun. Should we all consider a "sunny" solution? // PRODUCTION TEAM DETAILS Co-ordinator for OLSET : Farhana Chand ; Project manager at COL : Paul West and Krishna Alluri ; Project consultants : Kennedy Onyango, Saminu Ibrahim, James Onyango and Frances Cox (writer/producer) ; South Africa field recordings : Pule Phalatse ; Other recordings: Our thanks to Kazimierz Janowski, Ruth Evans, Warrill Grindrod and Namiz Musafer ; Presentation : Vineeta Dwevidi and Rupa Jha ; Music: " Coming Together" theme music composed and recorded by Lee Sparey at The Grooveyard
