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
The centre will be part of the Global Network of Regional Sustainable Energy Centers (GN-SEC) which is coordinated by UNIDO in partnership with regional organizations. The network is currently supported by more than 89 energy ministers and/or heads
The study 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
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.
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
