Book description
People all around the world want energy. Whether it's to see in the dark, cook a meal, or watch TV, it's a commodity much in demand. Volt Face looks at how people are getting their energy needs met without having to tap into large electricity schemes, with five stories on the contribution alternative energy can make to conservation of natural resources: in Mexico, improved cooking stoves reduce the amount of wood being cut from the local forests; in Scotland, Ocean Power Delivery Limited has developed a machine to convert wave energy into electricity; in Zimbabwe, a new micro-hydro project is generating power to help end food shortages and improve education; in India, oil from the honge seed is being used as diesel fuel for farm equipment; in Cuba, a UNDP project enables local manufacture of solar panels; and in Vanuatu, coconut oil is providing a substitute for diesel.
