  • Current Status of Renewable Energy Technologies for Electricity Generation
           in Rwanda and Their Estimated Potentials

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Jan 2019
      Source:Energy and Environmental Engineering  Volume  6  Number  1  Hakizimana Eustache   Diego Sandoval   Umaru Garba Wali   and Kayibanda Venant   Renewable energy technologies produce sustainable, clean energy from sources such as the sun, the wind, plants and water. Renewable energy often provides energy in four important areas: electricity generation, air and water heating/cooling, transportation and rural (off-grid) energy services. According to the Rwanda Energy Group, in 2018, the total installed capacity of Rwanda's power generating plants was recorded at 218MW. Renewable sources of energy accounted for about 113.14 MW (52.4%) of total energy consumption in Rwanda. Renewable energy technologies have the potential to strengthen the nation's energy security, improve environmental quality and contribute to a strong energy economy. The purpose of this paper is to review the current renewable energy technologies in Rwanda with an estimation of their potential; the challenges of new and existing renewable energy technologies are also presented. The most important renewable energy technologies (i.e., hydro, solar and biomass energy) are discussed and analysed. Moreover, each renewable energy technology's description is followed by its current potential share, its challenges, the advantages of increased adoption, future perspectives and disadvantages. The results show that 35.13% of Rwandan households are connected to the national grid and 11.33% accessing through off-grid systems. These show that access to electricity remains low, so in the rural areas, efforts are also required to provide electricity to those who are not close to the national grid.

  • Household's Willingness to Pay for Improved Solid Waste Management in
           Gulelle Sub City, Addis Ababa

    • Abstract: Publication date:  Jan 2019
      Source:Energy and Environmental Engineering  Volume  6  Number  1  Galgalo Dika   Aga Nemie   and Endalkachew Birhane   This study was conducted to assess households willingness to pay (WTP) for improved solid waste management (SWM). Contingent valuation method (CVM) was employed to elicit household's WTP for the proposed improvement in solid waste management service. The data from CVM survey was analyzed by using logistic regression model. The results of the study revealed that largest proportion of households had awareness of inappropriate disposal of wastes and its problems and that they were (78%) ready to pay for the wastes they generate. Furthermore, we found that significant number of the respondents (76 %) were willing to supports proposed improvement in residential solid waste management. Mean monthly willingness to pay is 21 Ethiopian Birr (ETB) with a minimum of 5 ETB and the maximum of 100 ETB, while the rest of the respondents were not willing to contribute. The results of logit regression analysis showed that sex and household size were statistically significant at 5% and 1% respectively. Therefore, the concerned body (municipality, NGO or other voluntary group) should take their part in raising the awareness and perceptions of households on waste management and thus, to improve their willingness to pay for improved SWM.
