Sustainable Energy

Energy is important for people in all its many doings; we would not be able to exist without energy. In the industrialised world energy has become something we take for given. Most people do not ask questions about the sustainability of our present energy use. The only issues people are concerned about with energy is the price and now also climate changes. For the people in Karatu District energy is not something which is taken as given. Here it becomes still more and more difficult to find the necessary fuelwood. The use of fuelwood also brings along many environmental problems and health risks. Sustainable Energy seems a very far away thing in Karatu. You will here find information on Sustainable Energy and on how this concept has developed. You can also read about how people in Tanzania and Denmark experience energy in different ways.
