The continued use of traditional fuels is associated with health challenges including asphyxiation, upper and lower respiratory complications, and mortality. Notwithstanding the benefits of household electrification in rural areas, there is a great need to consider other cheaper alternative energy sources, as the cost of electricity tends to limit its use. Household “energisation” instead of “electrification” has the potential to provide households with access to clean renewable energy sources at minimal cost. Effective household energisation employs a systems approach towards a more comprehensive energy access strategy of meeting households’ energy needs using a suite of locally available renewable energy carriers. Energy options available for rural communities are assessed using a ‘systems thinking’ approach.]]> Thu 17 May 2018 08:30:36 SAST ]]>
