Team Members: Jukka Valimaki, Blandine Antoine, Rhonda Jordan, Mark Yen, Alla Jezmir, Benjamin Lambert and Emmanuel Cassimatis Geographic Focus: Tanzania Project: This battery swap business will serve low-income Tanzanians who lack access to electricity by allowing them to buy and recharge, at local sites, batteries that can power households for up to three days. By collecting customer fees each time they swap an empty battery for a recharged one, the venture will be financially viable. Summer 2009 work will include further market research and construction of the first of four pilot operating sites in Tanzania.
