|Boiling Point No. 43 - Fuel Options for Household Energy (ITDG - ITDG, 1999, 44 p.)|
You are invited to send articles for the next two issues of Boiling Point, the themes of which will be:
· BP44: Linking household energy with other development objectives It is important to look at projects as being a way of improving the quality of life for communities rather than as technical interventions. This edition will examine ways in which household energy considerations can be part of other development sectors such as forestry, building, health etc. and the social, economic and technical benefits of such an approach.
· BP45: Low-cost electrification for household energy. Boiling Point usually focuses its attention on producing heat for cooking and space heating. However, the quality of people's lives can be improved greatly by access to light, radio, TV, and small power tools etc. In this edition, we invite all those working in the field of low-cost electrification to submit material. We are interested in methods of generation and uses for electricity. Information about technical, institutional and financial mechanisms for allowing poor people to access electricity (both on and off-grid) is also welcome.
Articles should be no more than 1500 words in length. Illustrations, such as drawings, photographs, graphs and bar charts, are essential. Articles can be submitted as typescripts, on disc (preferably WORD), or by e-mail.
All correspondence should be addressed to: Boiling Point Editor, Intermediate Technology, Schumacher Centre for Technology & Development, Bourton Hall, Bourton on Dunsmore, Rugby, CV23 9QZ, UK, or by e-mail to <firstname.lastname@example.org>
