  • Solar towers (updraft)

    Type: 
    Technology
    Sectors:
    Objective:

    A solar updraft power plant consists of a chimney, a collector area and wind turbines. In the collector area air is heated by solar radiation under a glass or plastic roof. This heat is thus forced upwards through the chimney thereby creating a wind force. By placing wind turbines inside the tower the force can be used to produce electricity. The technology is particularly suitable in remote areas (for instance, areas in developing countries) where low-value land can be used for the heat collection. The collector itself functions as a greenhouse and could be used for growing cash crops.

  • Biomass Energy Sector Planning Guide

    Type: 
    Publication

The Guide is based on experiences of EUEI PDF and GIZ in Botswana, Lesotho, Malawi, Rwanda, Mozambique, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Nepal and Sierra Leone. Even though this guide is largely built on experience in Africa, it has relevance beyond Africa and the methodology can be applied in all countries where biomass is the main fuel for households and small enterprises.
