Infrastructure problems for rural new and renewable energy systems



Infrastructure problems for rural new and renewable energy systems



Journal of Energy and Development 6(2): 232-250



The paper was prepared for presentation to the meeting of the Ad Hoc Expert Group on Rural Energy for the United Nations Conference on New and Renewable Services of Energy, Nairobi, Kenya, January 26-30, 1981. It highlights three infrastructure elements that should be evaluated before rural new and renewable energy sources are implemented: rural credit, roads and transport, and repair and maintenance.
