Abstract:Analysis of the options and constraints in the delivery of modern energy supply to rural areas reveals that rural Eritrea is devoid of modern energy services due to several factors. Poverty, however, is the main cause. This paper presents a comparative analysis of the merits of centralized and decentralized approaches. It also examines the question of whether or not income-generating activities have a better chance of attracting modern energy than domestic use. Finally, it looks at measures required for the removal of barriers to the promotion of renewable energy technologies. Bibliogr., sum. [Journal abstract]
