Open Source in Energy Access Webinar From EnAccess

Open Source can help drive down costs while improving quality, can save valuable time and might just get more word-of-mouth around your product or idea. So are you already taking advantage of using or publishing open source materials, or has something been holding you back?

Tune in on September 14th to part one of this two-part webinar series and hear directly from open source innovators, adopters, and donors about their experience with open sourcing in the energy access sector. You’ll hear about:

– Real-world examples about how open source has benefited companies in the energy access industry space – How adopters of open source tools can build on top of open source successfully

– The challenges of adopting an open source strategy and how to address them

– An informative Q&A with the webinar panelists
