Title
Demand side analysis of warm comfort improvements in high cold regions: A case from Huancavelicia, Peru
Authors (non HEDON members)
Mariana Jiménez, Lukas Kahlen
Abstract
The low economic level of Huancavelica, Peru is reflected in the poor
housing conditions in which most of its inhabitants live. This situation,
together with the harsh weather conditions (typical of the High Andes
region) and the use of inefficient and pollutant energy devices, such as
open fires for heating, negatively contribute to the living conditions of
many of the poorest households in Huancavelica. With this in mind,
a research study is conducted within the region to assess the potential
demand for technologies and (passive) house improvement measures,
which could help improve the warm comfort performance of poor
households in the area. The article summarises the main findings of
the field research study, highlighting those technologies and house
improvement measures with potential to be implemented in the region.
Additionally, it presents the main barriers for a large scale dissemination
of such improvements and suggests ideas to overcome those challenges.
