Since 1994 SustainableEnergy har been working on programs in countries with little og no access to energy for large parts of the population. Access to energy is just as big a problem for poor people as access to money and land. For a poor person in a developing country, generating energy for cooking, heating and lighting is a daily battle which often leads to solutions that have harmful additional effects on the environment. Our main objectives has been and still is to help the poorest parts of the population to acknowledge their issues and on owm terms find af way to implement sustainable solutions for energy supply.

SustainableEnergy in Vietnam

In 2012, we initiated a new Energy Alliance together with Scandinavian and Vietnamese partners. The aim was to promote sustainable energy production solutions based on local natural resources, as an alternative to centralised production based on fossil- and nuclear fuels.

All projects were completed in 2013, and we are now focussing on activities in Mali, Mozambique and Kenya.

SustainableEnergy in Thailand

From 1994 till 2006 SustainableEnergy worked with the Thai NGO ATA (Appropriate Technology Association) on 3 projects in Thailand.  An increasing energy consumption, mostly supplies byimports of fossil fuels, let to an increasing degree of environmental challenges.

Thai I: Thai - Danish Cooperation on Sustainable Energy
Local partner: ATA (Appropriate Technology Association)
Project period: 1997-2000

Project objectives where on awareness raising, information and education of the people with regard to energy and environment questions on the one side, and training and capacity building of NGOs and local authorities on the other.

Thai II: Provincial Programme for Sustainable Energy
Local partner: ATA (Appropriate Technology Association)
Project period: 2000-2004

The Thai II project built upon results from the Thai I project. The project had the goal to strengthen the ability of NGOs, CBOs, educational institutions and public authorities to include renewable energy solutions in local energy planning

Regional Energy Planning
Samarbejdspartner: ATA (Appropriate Technology Association)
Projektperiode: Januar-Marts 2006

The Regional Energy Planning (REP) project sought to develop strategies and legislation for decentralised energy planning. At the same time national, regional and local authorities in the energy sector would be strengthened, so that they would be ready to carry out the newly-adopted energy policies.

SustainableEnergy in Malaysia

Allthough Malaysia is a producer of both oil and gas, Malaysia was facing an growing dependence on oil imports and therefore tried to turned to the use of alternative energy sources. SustainableEnergy's project aimed to raise awareness of renewable energy and energy-saving amongs the public by establishing an education and training centre in Kuala Lumpur.

SustainableEnergy in Mongolia

With the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1990, Mongolia underwent a radical upheaval. The change from a socialist planned economy to a market economy had great social and economic consequenses for the people in Mongolia. Mongolia is still one of the world's poorest countries.

The project's aim was to relieve the energy supply problems by setting up a waterpower plant in the town of Erdenebulgan, and thereby give every household access to electricity.

Local partner: Local authorities in Erdenebulgan and the Ministry of Energy
Project period: 1999-2006
