Abstract

Namibia's off grid settlements suffer from poor economic development due to an inadequate energy infrastructure. Limited resources in arid regions of Namibia have caused a surge in alternative energy use and resourceful capacity building. This report consists of designs for containerized services and an evaluation of small-scale wood gasification technologies for rural settlements where resource scarcity is an enormous hindrance.
