Geospatial Mapping Of Biomass Supply And Demand In Nepal

Abstract

Kim Robinson

In Nepal, a geospatial mapping approach was used to examine the spatial distribution and demand for biomass sources for household energy. The relationship between biomass supply and demand is critical for establishing efficient rural energy programmes in the setting of rural homes. Lowlands, hills, and mountains, which have diverse geographical distribution and need for biomass, were chosen to represent the country's primary topographical areas. Field surveys and tests were used to calculate the supply potential of fuelwood using a Geographical Information System (GIS) tool, as well as the potential of agricultural wastes and dung and household energy demands. In the lowlands, hills, and mountains, families having safe access to biomass sources were 57 percent, 50 percent, and 3 percent, respectively
