Acceptance and suitability of renewable energy technologies in Lao PDR

Research output: Book/ReportReportProfessional


Based on the findings of the various studies completed under the Asia Pro Eco (APE) project, this paper reviews the social acceptability of PV Solar and biomass in the context of the Lao PDR. The analysis is guided by two key questions: What are the constraints and barriers to successful extension of RE to rural areas? What improvements can should be made to RE policy and extension services, meeting the needs of local social and environmental drivers for change?
