Energy Researchers at Trinity, Engineer a Generator that provides Electricity from Cooking to Homes in Rural Malawi

 

 

Energy researchers at the School of Engineering at Trinity College Dublin have just completed an Irish Aid, Intel and IRCSET funded research project that generates electricity from cooking stoves, providing lighting and phone charging in Malawi, one of the world’s least developed countries. Promoted by Irish Aid and in collaboration with the non-governmental organisation, Concern Universal, the generator is specifically designed to be used with low cost stoves now being produced by women’s groups in rural areas. The results have recently been published in the journal Applied Energy.

More carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and rising temperatures cause rice agriculture to release more of the potent greenhouse gas methane (CH4) for each kilogram of rice it produces, new research published recently in the online edition of Nature Climate Change reveals. “Our results show that rice agriculture becomes less climate friendly as our atmosphere continues to change. This is important, because rice paddies are one of the largest human sources of methane, and rice is the world’s second-most produced staple crop,” said Dr Kees Jan van Groenigen, Research Fellow at the Botany Department at the School of Natural Sciences, Trinity College Dublin, and lead author of the study.
