SET18 Finalist: BioLite’s Mini-Doc Series Unpacking the Micro-Revolution of Energy in East Africa

Connecting The Watts is a 3-part miniseries from BioLite that explores three personal-scale innovations in energy in east Africa and their surprisingly interconnected impact on economy, communication, climate, and more.
