PROMOTING RENEWABLE ENERGY

  • TECHNOLOGIES TO REDUCE POVERTY IN RURAL COMMUNITIES IN BAMBOUTOS
  • WESTERN PROVINCE, CAMEROON

OUTLINES

  • Presentation of ACREST
  • Some physical data of bamboutos areas
  • Energy and poverty in Bamboutos division
  • ACREST contribution to RETs development
  • Conclusion

Using locally available resources for a reliable and sustainable development

slide3

PRESENTATION OF ACREST

ACREST is a laic, apolitical and civil society Organization based in a rural area of Cameroon

Using locally available resources for a reliable and sustainable development

slide4

PRESENTATION OF ACREST

ACREST main tasks consist in:

  • Collecting information and know-how

on appropriate technology from both

developed and developing world;

  • Adapt it to the local social, cultural and

economical context;

  • Demonstrate how it works; how it can save time by avoiding tedious handwork;
  • Promote its replication by local artisan, and diffusion through the local market

PRESENTATION OF ACREST (end)

Energy sevice provider and a production center Focussing on 2 main categories

1-Renewable Energies

Solar energy, hydo-energy, Wind energy,Biomass, Biogas and Muscular energy.

2-Sustainable technologies

Pumps (water supply), Food processing equipments, transport, improved cooking stoves, Low-cost building techniques, sanitation, recycling etc.

SOME PHYSICAL DATA OF BAMBOUTOS RURAL AREAS

  • Hihgland region (800-2700m)
  • Abundant rainfall throughout the year (with an aerage of 1500mm) and temperature range in between 15 to 30°C.
  • Densed hydrographic network with

numerous rainfalls

Using locally available resources for a reliable and sustainable development

slide7

ENERGY AND POVERTY IN BAMBOUTOS DIVISION

  • Only 5% of rural population have acces to electricity facilities;
  • Up to 65% of public schools are not connected to the grid, with no access to information Technology
  • Up to 95% of water supply systems are out of use due to energy shortage.

slide8

ENERGY AND POVERTY IN BAMBOUTOS DIVISION(end)

  • Walking for 1 to 3hr to find a milling machine for maize, collect firewood or buy kerosene for lighting
  • Women spend several hours to cook with an open fire: three stones system.
  • Food processing equipments are rudimentary and time consuming. Agriculture remains the main activity.
  • Children walk long distances after

school to fetch water or collect firewood.

ACREST CONTRIBUTION TO RETs DEVELOPMENT

  • Direct use of mecanical energy from water
  • Simple to passive water lifting devices

ACREST CONTRIBUTION TO RETs DEVELOPMENT

  • Installation of 2 Picco-hydro systems

0.5kw generator installed

1kw generator installed

ACREST CONTRIBUTION TO RETs DEVELOPMENT

  • On going installation of 2 micro-hydro systems

7.5 kw alternator using a locally manufactured pelton turbine

30 kw alternator using a locally manufactured crossflow turbine

Promotion of other renewable energy sources

ACREST CONTRIBUTION TO RETs DEVELOPMENT (end)

  • Solar energy: an experimental solar collector is installed
  • and working properly
  • Wind energy: A wind generator with locally

manufactured blades is installed and together with

the solar panel, ensures self lighting of a 4 rooms flat

  • Capacity building
  • Resource place for universities students

CONCLUSION

  • Lack of capacity building and expertise
  • Poor access to technical and practical information and know-how
    • Technologies use in our rural are inefficient.
    • Poor productivity in allmost all domains and hence to extreme povety.
  • Thanks IN-SHP for organising this training workshop and believes that it will be of great interest to ACREST (cameroonians) as well as to other african countries.
  • Wish that more often such training sessions be organised.
