Climate & Energy

Climate Change is perhaps the greatest challenge humanity has ever faced

© Diana Shuma

The Planet is getting dangerously warmer! We need to rapidly move away from the fossil fuels of oil, coal and gas to renewable energy sources like solar and wind plus the use of improved cooking stoves. The time to Act is Now

WHY DOES IT MATTER?

We all rely daily on energy to cook, light up our homes and factories, work, medical facililities and even to walk around. How we produce our energy though hugely affects our environment. 

Tanzania's energy supply depends mainly on biomass. Since more than 60% of the population are not connected to the national grid, the overwhelming majority of the rural households use charcoal and firewood for cooking. Ad a total biomass makes up close to 90% of the total primary energy consumption in the country.

Unfortunately this leads to the deforestation of more than 300,000h per year, of which only about a quarter is reforested

 

Did you Know?

Just 1 wind turbine can generate energy to power 1400 homes
