How solar household systems contribute to resilience

Source(s):  Overseas Development Institute (ODI)

This paper explores the relationship between the energy services provided by solar household devices, and the resilience of their users to the effects of climate change. This paper draws two main conclusions for policy-makers on the links between resilience and access to electricity:

  • Policy-makers responsible for electrification should be made aware of the potential for solar lamps and solar home systems to contribute to the capacities necessary for resilience.
  • The potential of households’ existing solar lamps and solar home systems should be considered by policy-makers when formulating strategies and plans for disaster preparedness.
