Nine hospitals in Libya have solar panels, giving half a million people access to uninterrupted health services, according to a report from Thomson Reuters Foundation.
They have been helped by a United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) programme installing solar panels in hospitals to provide uninterrupted power to critical rooms.
The report adds: "We don’t hear much about Libyan energy sources outside of oil and gas. But there is strong potential for solar power in Libya, particularly in the hot, southern deserts."
