Improved Cooking Stoves and CDM Implications

Supported By: The Thin Page

Summary: Nepal relies heavily on traditional energy. The major sources of energy used in Nepal are fuel wood, petroleum and animal waste. The total energy consumption in Nepal is 376.3 million GJ in year 2011/12. Almost 80.36 % of the total energy consumption of Nepal was consumed in residential area, followed by industrial area which is about 7.89% and transportation 7.89%. Fuel wood alone supplies 84% of the total energy requirement of the residential sector followed by animal waste 6.32%, and agricultural residue 4.37% respectively(WECS, 2014).This total dependence on fuel wood as the source of energy for cooking has resulted in deterioration of the quality and quantity of forest and has posed a serious threat in maintaining ecological balance, thereby manifesting various problems like deforestation, flood, global warming, soil erosion, landslides, and climate change and so on (Shrestha, A. 2010).
