Community participation in the use of alternative energy sources and efficient use of domestic electricity by Dimuthu Lama Saha Tharuna Sangamaya (DEIHERM)
Awareness programmes to change attitudes and practices of people on efficient use of domestic energy, introduce alternative energy sources for domestic and small scale industrial use, implement monitoring methods for students on efficient use of domestic electricity through participation of 60 students from schools. The NGO attempts to develop a replicable model for energy conservation through two innovative approaches. In one, school children were successfully mobilsed to conserve household electricity consumption, while in the other a selected number of women were mobilised to change practices pertaining to use of excessive fuel-wood for cooking.
