Practical energy projects
Together with local partners Norges Naturvernforbund builds low cost and small scale environmentally friendly energy solutions in many countries. We believe in local solutions based on locally available resources, and trainings and information to the local population.
Promotion of the “do it yourself” energy solutions is the core of our activities, together with education and capacity building for environmental NGOs. Improved efficiency and use of local renewable energy sources gives immediate results: Better energy services at lower cost, reduced emissions, improved indoor climate and reduced pressure on vulnerable natural resources.
Simple measures can cut energy consumption considerably and provide new energy services to families living without energy to meet their basic needs. Nevertheless, governments and other stakeholders often focus on new production capacity and oversee even the most obvious needs for improved demand side management.
