Palmis Enèji : Acces to energy in Haiti
56% of Haitian households live with energy insecurity. It leads serious consequences: the lack of gas subsidies means that households are using wood charcoal for cooking, leading to the destruction of forest cover (covering 2% of the country today, compared with 20 % in 1978). The consequences of such desertification aresevere.
The lack of access to electrical energy is also a major problem: even those homes which are officially connected to the electricity network have an electricity supply which is rare or intermittent.
Palmis Enèji : access to energy for the most vulnerable people
In 2012, Entrepreneurs du Monde created PALMIS Enèji to allow people living with energy insecurity to protect their health, improve their financial situation and safeguard their environment by providing access to energy sources and equipment which are more efficient and/or renewable.
