Renewable Energy for Rural Livelihood (RERL)
PDF File Size: 377 KB | Download   
Despite a sharp increase over the past two decades in the number of households with access to electricity, 30 Percent of Nepali households, almost exclusively in remote rural areas, do not have access to electricity. In rural Nepal, about 92 Percent of all cooking energy comes from traditional biomass. This continued reliance on fuelwood, agricultural residue and cattle dung for cooking depletes the forests of trees and farmers’ fields of natural fertilizers. Other factors that make renewable energy for rural areas a development priority are the 7 Percent annual growth of Nepal’s energy needs, the lack of national energy generation on capacity and the importance of conserving the environment.
