SIMBA EA 1.2 | What should be done to promote uptake and use of renewable energy alternatives in your household?

Background

Uganda is endowed with high potential for renewable energy sources ranging from hydro electric power, solar, wind and biomass. However, over 90% of Ugandans still rely on raw biomass such as firewood and crop residue to satisfy their fuel needs. This has had negative consequences on the environmental such as reduction in green vegetation, which experts say is responsible for mudslides, floods and long dry spells.

A. Raise awareness of the environmental benefits of renewable energy
B. Provide affordable micro-credit loans
C. Promote technology development for renewable energy alternatives
D. Gov’t should exempt taxes on renewable energy alternatives
E. Increase quality control and regulate market prices
