Burkina Faso Energy Situation - energypedia.info

IntroductionEnergy SituationKey Problems of The Energy SectorPolicy Framework, Laws and RegulationsInstitutional Set-Up in The Energy SectorFurther InformationReferencesIn Burkina Faso, more than 80 % of the energy supply derives from biomass (mainly firewood and charcoal). In rural areas nearly all energy consumed is biomassbased. Hence the national average is a consumption of 0,69 kg of firewood per person per day. This ratio can rise in some areas up to more than 1 kg, e.g. if there is no incentive to save fuel or if moisture in the wood fuel reduces the efficiency hence causing a higher wood fuel consumption. Urban households prefer charcoal to wood because it is perceived as more clean and modern. However, because of the application of low efficient technologies in the charcoal production, the use of charcoal in towns is implicating a high wood consumption in rural areas. In recognition of this effect, the charcoal production has been re-organized and concentrated in five production areas in 2005. Still, the impact of inefficient charcoal production can be observed. Despite the population growth, there are no real wood fuel shortages felt in m...
