The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) wants to use solar energy for its humanitarian missions in Africa. Its Green Fund has just launched a call for tenders for the installation of 10 solar photovoltaic systems for its operations in three East African countries, namely Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda.
