The Small Grants and Ambassador’s Fund Program under the energy sector focuses on promoting alternate energy means, improving energy use efficiency and providing technical support and training. Grant projects emphasize renewable energy sources for generating livelihoods and improving quality of life, as well as contributing to easing pressure on the existing energy infrastructure. Some of the initiatives include the provision of energy efficient stoves to communities dependent on forest wood; construction of bio-gas plants for household use; construction of micro-hydro power stations or home-based solar systems in areas without electricity; and construction of solar dehydration plants for drying fresh fruit.
