The ICIMOD study analyzes the potential for increasing energy efficiency and reducing emissions from diesel generating (DG) sets used during electricity outages in the Kathmandu Valley—by switching from individual DG sets to micro-grids.
in Kathmandu is extremely polluted, with fine particles (PM2.5) being the major cause of concern. If you ask the average resident where all the pollution is coming from, many will point the blame at vehicles. But when we look for ways to reduce
specifically to develop an emission inventory of short-lived climate pollutants, or SLCPs. Training attendees were given a short overview on LEAP-IBC and its many potential benefits for developing improved emissions
climate pollutants (SLCPs) are agents that have relatively short lifetime in the atmosphere — a few days to a few decades — and a warming influence on climate. The main SLCPs are black carbon, methane and tropospheric ozone. Aside
