ICIMOD’s current work on Energy
ICIMOD’s Energy Work in the Past
Project Implemented on the Ground
Though a variety of interpretations exist, the term ‘benefit sharing’ references a new set of programmatic methods to reconcile the uneven incidence of costs and benefits resulting from hydropower development, an attempt to recognise the diverse
The Hindu Kush Karakoram Pamir Landscape (HKPL) Initiative at the International Centre for Integrated Mountain Development (ICIMOD) is working to promote transboundary cooperation to support conservation and development in the far western region of
Solar powered irrigation pumps (SPIP) provides an alternative technology that has been tested widely in the region and has been found to be a technically proven and workable solution and is suited for all categories of farms – large holder, small
The region has high hydropower potential, but the changing climate and likely changes in the hydrological regime may pose a risk to future hydropower development. The changing probabilities and magnitudes of extreme events can place an additional
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.
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 experiences and lessons learned from this project have been encapsulated in three publications, including policy guidelines, a training manual, project learning, and in a documentary film which hopes to help policy makers and rural development
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
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
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
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
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
My main focus at GRID-Arendal is on communicating and advocating mountain and Arctic climate and environment issue...
