Years ago, Hivos opted to aim for an ambitious goal of promoting 100% renewable energy worldwide. In the new brochure in English and Spanish, Renewable Energy in the Hands of People, Hivos show not only how to achieve that goal, but also the contributions Hivos itself is making: irrigation powered by solar panels, hydropower for light in the dark and biogas to avoid harmful fumes from cookstoves. In all this, decentralised renewable energy generation is the solution, but action is needed. With the proper technology and financing, even more super storms like Typhoon Haiyan, the strongest tropical cyclone to make landfall in recorded history, can be prevented.
