Several technologies like solar photovoltaic home sets, solar lights, solar cookers and improved cook stoves are popular among the people in these project areas. The study recommends upscaling and replication of the successes of the project to other
shows that the HKH remains energy-poor, with more than 80% of rural households still reliant on traditional solid biomass fuel for cooking and heating. This is causing enormous damage to the environment, triggering widespread harm to human
This study makes an attempt to generate database of HKH specific energy demand using both the ‘top-down’ and ‘bottom-up’ approaches and undertakes sectoral energy demand projections from 2013 to 2030
Within a short span the project results showed the vast potential for saving fuel and greenhouse gas emissions, reducing indoor air pollution, and freeing up time spent in collecting fuel, especially by women, for productive activities.
The proposed centre will promote the uptake of markets, industries and innovation for adapted sustainable energy mountain solutions through regional exchange and methodologies.

ICIMOD’s Energy Work in the Past
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.
Energy efficiency studies have traditionally focused on households or industries. Recent studies by the World Bank and the US Agency for International Development (USAID)’s South Asia Regional Initiative for Energy Integration (SARI/EI) programme
Non-farm livelihood promotion
communities with a large rural population engaged in subsistence agroforestry-based production on increasingly fragmented landholdings. Agroforestry-based enterprises are considered a
