In Namibia, as in many developing countries, a high proportion of rural communities lack access to the national electricity grid. A major reason for this is the fundamental problem of providing a service, which cannot recover its costs, to areas of low population density. Little use has been made of solar energy to meet the needs of rural communities. This book investigates the potential for photovoltaic and, to a lesser extent, other solar energy technologies to meet these energy needs.

More than two billion people worldwide have currently no access to grid electricity or other efficient energy supply. This is one third of humanity and the majority live in rural areas. The productivity and health of these people are diminished by reliance on traditional fuels and technologies, with women and children suffering most. Energy is the key element to empower people and ensure water, food and fodder supply as well as rural development. Therefore access to energy should be treated as the fundamental right to everybody. Renewable energy has the potential to bring power, not only in the literal sense, to communities by transforming their prospects. This book offers options that meet the needs of people and communities for energy and engage them in identifying and planning their own provision. It describes updated renewable energy technologies and offers strategies and guidelines for the planning and implementation of sustainable energy supply for individuals and communities.

This annotated bibliography introduces readers to preventive approaches for making the energy requirements of modern ways of life more sustainable. Since a society can neither create nor destroy energy, all energy is temporarily borrowed from the biosphere and returned to it in degraded form. The activities of a way of life of a society that involve energy flows may be represented as a network for which the biosphere acts as the ultimate source and sink. This network and therefore the energy basis for a modern life style will be sustainable when the biosphere can perform these roles indefinitely. The present bibliography regards the preventive approaches related to energy as a capital component of preventive approaches for improving the sustainability of contemporary civilization. This book, as well as the two companion volumes, Sustainable Production and Healthy Cities, is the result of a twelve-year research project carried out at the Center for Technology and Social Development at the University of Toronto. The research findings led to the development of a new conceptual framework and strategy aimed at converting technological and economic growth into development that would gradually become more sustainable.
