Kurzfassung:
Around 18% of the worldīs population still donīt have access to electricity, most of them living in rural
areas in South Asia, Southeast Asia, and Sub-Saharan Africa. Kerosene lamps are widely used for lighting
in these regions, but imply a big number of disadvantages including low light quality, reduced indoor air
quality and safety concerns. Furthermore, the consumption of kerosene for lighting is very energy
inefficient and implies a relatively high cost for the added value it provides, while its price volatility is
a major concern for dependant developing regions. Global carbon dioxide emissions from kerosene lamps
exceed 200 mega tons annually. A solar home system using light emitting diode lamps provides an
effective solution for this problem. This paper elaborates such a solar home system while focusing on
overcoming implementation barriers including lack of technical support and affordability. An evolutionary
techno-economic assessment, considering the time period 2015-2030, is provided for the proposed
system. This emphasizes not only the existing but also the increasing advantage of solar home systems
over kerosene lamps.
