"Energy solutions for emergency relief interventions" by Sarah Kent and Blanche Cameron from RESET


The main focus of this talk will be household energy and why it is important to provide local training in site on appropriate renewable technologies such as solar, wind, hydro, low fuel stoves and biogas in order to reduce dependency on diesel, kerosene and other imported fuels bearing a high financial and environmental price tag.
