CONREMA, the Cooperation Network for Renewable Energy in Malawi, provides an exchange and learning platform for all stakeholders involved in the design, implementation and analysis of energy projects in the country or in related policies and strategies.

Basing their inaugural website on Open Outreach, Chocolate Lily was able to quickly customize the CONREMA site to provide a searchable framework for both renewable energy projects and also for organizations and individuals active in the sector. With a small budget reflective of the challenges faced by many NGOs working in Africa, basing the site on a distribution gave the necessary leg up to successfully complete this project. Working with a client where there is a nine-hour time difference and not very reliable internet does add extra complexities to a project. But with patience, flexibility and some early morning training sessions, we were able to overcome those challenges.
