Abstract [en]

Currently 55 percent of the population in Kenya is without electricity. To apply light and warmth during the dark hours households in Kenya use paraffin lamps. These lamps are both expensive, harmful to health and have a negative environmental impact. With the help from solar panels, more people in Kenya could get access to green electricity. Seeding solar has a vision to let companies and individuals invest in solar panels to get a positive environmental impact and climate compensate for their possible emissions.

We have created a prototype of Seeding solars website to make donations possible and give the companies and individuals feedback for the investments they have done. The feedback is shown through visualization of the reduced carbon dioxide emissions in relation to how many households that has received electricity from solar panels.

The result is a working web application with a visual simulation of the reduced carbon dioxide emissions for each individual investor. We have researched environmental topics, developed algorithms and created an infrastructure that supports Seeding Solar on their mission to contribute to sustainable development.

Abstract [sv]

I dagsläget saknar ungefär 55 procent av befolkningen i Kenya elektricitet. Istället används fotogenlampor för att få ljus och värme i hemmet. Fotogenlampor är dyra, skadliga för hälsan och miljöovänliga. Med hjälp av solpaneler kan fler människor få tillgång till elektricitet på ett miljövänligt sätt. Seeding solar vill ge företag och privatpersoner möjligheten att investera i solpaneler för att få en positiv miljöpåverkan och klimatkompensera för sina eventuella utsläpp.

Vi har skapat en prototyp av Seeding solars hemsida för att möjliggöra investeringar med återkoppling för företag och privatpersoner. Återkopplingen ges via en visualisering av de minskade koldioxidutsläppen, samtidigt som användaren får se hur många människor i Kenya som fått tillgång till elektricitet.

Resultatet är en fungerande webbapplikation med visuell simulering av reducerat koldioxid för varje individuell investerare. Vi har forskat om miljöaspekter, utvecklat algoritmer och skapat en infrastruktur som stöder Seeding Solar på sitt uppdrag för att bidra till en hållbar utveckling.
