We are currently selecting the cover for the next issue of Boiling Point on "Energy in Conflict and Emergency Relief"
The editor's decision is final and the selected photo will win absolutely nothing, apart from the admiration of our 3600+ subscribers and of course our thanks.

The theme:
The 'Energy in Conflict and Emergency Relief' issue will be exploring the following questions: Energy access is a vital component of both immediate relief and of longterm rehabilitation and development interventions. How does the approach to energy delivery differ between a relief and a rehabilitation towards long term development context? How can energy access act as an entry point for relief and conflict resolution? How may it reduce or exacerbate the vulnerability of affected communities? How do communities find solutions to access energy services in extreme situation?

Keywords: Energy, Emergency, Conflict

In extreme situations, you can cook for many many many people using an age old tecnique called "The dig-a-trench-stove", excellent wall side insualtion and is only limited by the amount of pots ,cooks and food!

This owner of this butchery was effected by the election violence in Kenya in 2007, thankfully he has managed to get back on his feet again and im sure that the energy savings he has made by switching to a insulated oven has helped him.

Bhid is one of the many forest villages which are to be rehabilitated and relocated outside the Ranthambhore Tiger Reserve (Rajasthan, India). Tribal communities residing here lack access to any kind of electricity and hence are forced to light up their homes using kerosene which has led to hazardous circumstances to these vulnerable communities.
Introduction of enterprise driven Solar Charging Stations under the Lighting a Billion Lives campaign (by The Energy and Resources Institute, New Delhi) has not only provided them clean lighting but has also increased the sense of satisfaction in the villagers who were otherwise always in a state of anger against the local authorities. Now, they run the solar charging stations which has 50 lanterns and is operated by a local resident of the village who earns a decent livelihood out of it. Decentralized electricity can resolve similar conflicts between various stakeholders provided it is coupled with a well thought, innovative and a robust delivery model.
