The intention of this project is to demonstrate the utilization of solar energy as alternative to the traditional use of fossil energy.The project is located east of Suriname in the district of Sipaliwini, a district primarily inhabited by indigenous and maroon tribes. More than 90% of Suriname land area is forest , storing carbon stocks, thus contributing to combat climate change. Electricity supply for this remote area is primarily dealt with by the Government in the form of diesel generator sets and fuel supply. Despite government efforts to provide electricity for all, to do so for the more than 200 villages in the interior of Suriname remains a huge challenge. Budgetary constraints also affect the Government's ability to apply (the more costly) low carbon emission options like solar ...
En partenariat avec Ericsson, l'opérateur pancaribbéen Digicel vient de relever un défi de taille : proposer des services de téléphonie mobile de qualité (dont lInternet mobile) sur tout le territoire du Suriname, y compris dans les zones amazoniennes les plus reculées. La géographie du pays et le manque dinfrastructures ont rendu le déploiement difficile, particulièrement dans les zones les plus excentrées du pays où se concentre une grande partie de la population. Pour surmonter ces obstacles, Digicel a choisi de coopérer avec Ericsson.
The Caribbean islands are still almost entirely dependent on oil for their electricity needs. Renewable energy plays a negligible role in the region's energy supply despite the fact that geographical and climate conditions are ideal. Theoretically, the islands could meet all their electricity needs with geothermal energy and hydropower - and slowly but surely, that switch is happening. Report by Elke Opielka.
Ever wondered what the infamous backtrack route between Guyana and Suriname looks like? Perhaps you also know folks who hopped over the pond en route to Paramaribo and never made it back. Real Guyana takes you on a road trip with him to see what all the fuss is about and to see if he can determine just what it is Suriname is doing so well that so many Guyanese have and continue to make it their home. Join me as I go in search of what 'the good life' promised by the new government could look like and on a quest for lessons worth implementing at home so more people don't feel the need to leave and fewer families suffer from the fractures so common where migration is concerned. The leaders of this nation can no longer pay lip service to the notion of a returning diaspora when they have made n...
The Universities of Anton De KOM OF Suriname, Ku Leuven OF Belgium and UG are collaborating to examine the emerging role of renewable energy in small developing nations at a regional symposium held at the regency Hotel….. Sean Embrack was there and files this report.
Lolliger dan dit kan het niet :)))))))))
