  • The Use of Behaviour Change Techniques in Clean Cooking Interventions | GVEP International
    of Behaviour Change Techniques in Clean Cooking Interventions Posted on 2 Feb 2015 11 41 Publication Tags Improved cookstoves Despite decades of effort around 2 8 billion people worldwide still rely on solid fuels such as wood dung and coal to meet their basic domestic energy needs This places strain on economies human wellbeing and the environment The use of solid fuels exposing people to smoke from cooking is the fourth most significant risk factor for disease in developing countries causing four million premature deaths in 2010 What people do i e their behaviours for example which cooking method and fuel they use where they burn fires how they use ventilation and where children and adults are located affects quality of life and can contribute to climate change The aim of this study is to review the use of behaviour change approaches in clean cooking interventions in resource poor settings Using publicly available data the report synthesises the evidence of the use of behaviour change techniques for human and environmental outcomes and impact Click here to download the study Share this page GVEP Publications We produce a wide range of publications including studies reports guides and fact sheets Suggest a

  • Mini-grid Policy Toolkit | GVEP International
    in rural Africa The International Energy Agency IEA estimates that mini grids can supply 50 of energy to the rural poor by 2030 However due to the lack of an enabling environment at present scale ups beyond a few pilot projects in most African countries remain rare In the framework of the Africa EU Renewable Energy Cooperation Programme RECP the EUEI PDF Alliance for Rural Electrification and REN21 have jointly developed the Mini grid Policy Toolkit that is designed to provide guidance on developing a sustainable mini grid policy Mike Enskat programme manager of EUEI PDF points out that Rural electrification requires more private investment Building the policy framework is the starting point to enable project financing and improving electricity access The Mini grid Policy Toolkit provides information on mini grid operator models the economics of mini grids and the necessary policies and regulations for successful implementation It is a pioneer in providing a vertical analysis of all specific instruments required for a sound mini grid policy and regulatory framework by categorising them based on their relevance for the adopted operator model Furthermore the toolkit also initiates the discussion on mini grids for rural electrification from a business point of

  • Africa Tower Power: Energy Challenges and Opportunities | GVEP International
    region s population The size of the tower portfolio is expected to grow to over 325 000 towers by 2020 The majority of telecom tower sites in Africa are deployed in either off grid areas or problematic grid areas with unreliable power supply Africa currently has an estimated 145 000 off grid sites which is expected to grow to 189 000 sites by 2020 The number of unreliable grid sites is expected to grow from 84 000 in 2014 to over 100 000 sites by 2020 Energy costs constitute a major chunk of network OPEX for mobile operators in Africa For a typical tower site in Africa the share of energy costs is as high as 40 of the overall network OPEX An off grid site consumes nearly 13 000 litres of diesel every year at an average annual energy OPEX of over US 21 000 and adds nearly 35 metric tons of CO2 emissions to the environment An unreliable grid site consumes around 6 700 litres of diesel and produces 18 metric tons of CO2 emissions to the environment Further to the above costs of diesel power there is an additional 10 15 cost due to diesel pilferage which is very common practice in many countries across Africa A 60 70 reduction in CO2 emissions by adopting green power alternatives for telecom towers would result in an annual OPEX savings of nearly US 17 000 per site It would require an initial investment of US 42 000 per site with an ROI of over 35 and payback of less than 3 years This presents a significant opportunity for mobile operators and investors to positively look into green power as a viable alternative to power mobile telecom networks Africa has a great renewable energy resources potential to be exploited especially

  • Global study shows clean energy activity surges in developing world | GVEP International
    the last two years Latin American and Caribbean nations were buoyed by Brazil but also relative newcomer Uruguay While Brazil still dominates Latin America and the Caribbean as a whole is emerging as a destination for clean energy investment Small scale renewables offer the most efficient way to provide energy access to vast numbers of people living without power Tanzania has the most advanced regulation to encourage these types of projects with a host of small power projects in the pipeline Demand for clean energy is growing faster on a percentage basis in these countries than in more developed nations From 2008 2013 Climatescope nations added 142 GW a bit more than the current total installed capacity of France of new non large hydro renewables capacity That represented a 143 growth rate By comparison wealthier OECD nations added 213GW posting a clean energy capacity growth rate of 84 Climatescope shows that countries are rapidly strengthening their policy frameworks Stronger policies attract more clean energy investment The Multilateral Investment Fund MIF of the Inter American Development Bank Group IDB the UK Government Department for International Development DFID and the US Agency for International Development USAID under President Barack Obama s Power Africa initiative commissioned Bloomberg New Energy Finance BNEF to analyze and rank development prospects for solar wind small hydro geothermal biomass and other zero carbon emitting technologies excluding large hydro This report provides potential investors with important information identifying countries with the greatest clean energy investment opportunities Climatescope was developed in 2012 by the MIF IDB and BNEF and initially evaluated 26 countries in Latin America and the Caribbean This year s expanded project includes 19 countries in Africa 10 in Asia as well as 15 provinces in China and 10 states in India thanks to additional support from DFID and USAID The Inter American Development Bank is pleased to see DFID and USAID join the Climatescope project to identify key drivers and markets for clean energy investment globally says Luis Alberto Moreno President of the Inter American Development Bank This marks the third year of the Climatescope project which aims not only to be a snapshot of where clean energy policy and finance stand today but more importantly serves as a guide to where clean energy opportunities can lie tomorrow A country s ranking depends upon various factors its clean energy investment policy its market conditions the structure of its power sector the number and makeup of local companies operating in clean energy and efforts toward reduction of greenhouse gas emissions The final output is the most comprehensive one stop source for decision makers to learn more about the market conditions for clean energy in these regions Private sector investment is vital if developing countries are to improve their renewable energy provision and underpin economic growth said the Rt Hon Justine Greening Climatescope boosts the investment potential of this market by giving investors the information they need to make reliable funding decisions thereby helping millions of people to access
