In both North and South, access to energy is heavily dependent on fossil or fissile resources. Their use has a huge environmental impact (climate, waste, etc.). In addition, the increasing scarcity of these resources and concomitant price rises cause growing fuel vulnerability. GERES is supporting energy production that relies on local renewable resources and supports socio-economic development involving all stakeholders.
GERES is developing clean energy production solutions appropriate to each area of intervention. They take account of energy demand, environmental vulnerability and available resources: natural assets, skills, equipment and support services. GERES supports the preparation of in-depth assessments, lifts technical and methodological constraints and helps local stakeholders to ensure territorial consistency.
