Beskrivelse
Mere end to milliarder mennesker i hele verden har for tiden ingen adgang til et elektricitetsnetværk eller andre former for effektiv energi forsyning. Det er en tredjedel af menneskeheden og hovedparten af dem bor på landet. Disse menneskers produktivitet og helbred skades af at man må nøjes med traditionelle teknologier, og kvinder og børn lider mest.

Energi er nøglen til at styrke disse mennesker og sikre dem vand, mad og foder så vel som generel udvikling i landdistrikterne. Derfor burde adgang til energi anses for at være en fundamental rettighed for alle. Vedvarende energi har potentialet til at levere energi, ikke kun i ordets bogstavelige betydning, til samfund ved at ændre deres udsigter.

Denne bog tilbyder muligheder, der opfylder kravet til energi og engagere dem i at identificere og planlægge deres egen forsørgelse især i udviklingslandene, men også i omstillingen fra fossile brændstoffer og atom brændstof til de vedvarende energiformer i den industrialiserede del af verden.

Bogen giver en opdateret beskrivelse af vedvarende energi teknologier and tilbyder strategier og retningslinjer til planlægning og implementering af bæredygtig energiforsyning for individuelle personer og samfund.
