Uraban Rural -Energy Strategy- Session:

The current pattern of energy use in rural areas of developing Asia, such as combustion of solid fuels at a significantly low efficiency, causes local environmental problems. This implies that introducing clean and low-cost energy carriers in a sustainable way is one of the keys to sustainable rural development in Asia.
In this context, the goal of this Session is twofolds. First, it aims to assess the cost-effectiveness of off-grid renewable energy power generation technologies for rural application in developing Asia. Second, it aims to explore future prospects for biofuels which could contribute to rural development in developing Asia.
