The adivasi region has an abundance of natural sources of energy that are more than enough to power homes of communities for electricity and cooking.
LAYA through its Renewable and Decentralised Energy Unit works with adivasi communities to harness natural resources to facilitate energy that can be produced, owned, controlled, managed and utilized by local adivasi communities. The last five years has seen a gradual but steady rise in our involvement in this area.
This initiative has been an important learning ground for us mostly in terms of understanding the various aspects of sustainability of small technologies in the adivasi context. The insights have helped in studying the feasibility and implementation options of a variety of technologies and climate related activities in geographically remote regions.
The following have been sucessfully initiated:
- Micro Hydro Systems
- Energy Efficient Woodstoves
- Bio-Sand Water Filters
- Solar Lanterns
