This project proposal builds on previous research by the project team to demonstrate how energy efficiency in buildings can be significantly increased all year round by combining passive solar heating, appropriate building materials, and adequate insulation with efficient heating techniques such as the rocket stove. Design and production of solar units and energy efficient rocket stoves will be followed by monitoring of the thermal performance and energy consumption of selected spaces. Results will indicate solutions that will provide high levels of thermal comfort and favour sustainable rural development. If village life can be made more attractive by providing higher village living standards there could be a decrease in migration from the rural to the urban areas.
