The Heed Project


The Humanitarian Engineering and Energy for Displacement (HEED) project is an innovative response to growing recognition of the need to improve access to renewable energy sources for populations displaced by conflict and natural disasters. The focus of HEED is on the lived experiences of Congolese refugees living for protracted periods of time in three refugee camps in Rwanda (Nyabiheke, Gihembe and Kigeme) and internally displaced persons (IDPs) forced to leave their homes as a result of the 2015 earthquake in Nepal. The Data Portal is an online repository for the HEED Project’s surveys undertaken in refugee camps and settlements in Rwanda and Nepal, including live sensor monitoring and photographic data on energy usage in contexts of displacement. The Data Portal will contain the HEED project empirical data on energy aspirations and needs of displaced people and new data will be uploaded continuously as the project and its interventions progress.
