Reducing and Offsetting
Climate change has engaged human minds in a quest to innovate simple and eco-friendly alternatives for the very sustenance of our species on this planet. Renewable energy is perhaps the first and foremost line of defence against climate change.
Ecosphere has been working on renewable energy alternatives in the Trans-Himalayan cold desert belt of HP both as an adaptation and mitigation measure to counter the impacts of climate change. Solar energy has been the key focus area for Ecosphere, however, research is also being undertaken on promoting wind and bio-gas in the region as well. Our current initiatives range from developing passive solar houses, improved green houses, setting up solar water geysers, solar cookers and providing the local community with a variety of other solar equipment.
