Power to the people : how sustainable energy services and development can be facilitated through grass root development- a case study from the Bondo district in Kenya
MetadataShow full item record
Serious international actors like the IPCC, the UNFCCC and the WEO, highlight the need to implement sustainable energy resources as fossil fuels has contributed to increase the global CO2 emission, which again has contributed to climate change. In many parts of the developing world there is currently no access to energy services. WEO predicts that developing countries will be responsible for much of the expected increase in CO2 emissions until 2015. As a result of this much research has been focusing on the potential sustainable energy services can bring to developing countries. However, I find that less research has been conducted on how this change that sustainable energy resources will bring, will be met in the local community. This thesis is therefore directed at how the current environment for the implementation of sustainable energy services is in a traditional rural village in Kenya.
