MSc SELECT students are fulfilling their vision to bring solar energy to small islands

When the MSc SELECT team started their project to save a small Thai fishing island’s energy source in March of 2018, they knew it was going to be a big challenge. They faced working long distance, coordinating with local agencies in Thailand, and the time pressure of saving a failing system that was losing power daily. However, the team rose to the challenge and as the Koh Jik ReCharge project nears the end (May 2019), they have a lot of successes under their belt – and are setting up a legacy to not only help this small community but positively affect the lives of many other communities with their microgrid solution.
