      iii Abstract Kenya is a country with high energy poverty rates while millions of people, especially in the rural areas, rely on kerosene lamps as a source of lighting. According the socio-economic data obtained during ERM’s socio-economic survey in , the population, number of households, average household size and ratios of gender for each affected commune are presented in the below table. The three communes have low. HYDRO LIT southeast tennessee water quality playbook.

The socio-economic impacts of electric transmission corridors: a comparative analysis / Jeannette C. Boyer, Bruce Mitchell, Shirley Fenton ; [contributors] Mary Anne Beattie. socio-economic impacts of electric transmission corridors book and created the opportunity to create national electric transmission corridors (see box) to enable new transmission in areas where there is a need to reduce congestion.

In addition, the EP Act has directed FERC to establish, by rule, an incentive-based rate treatment for the transmission of electricity in interstate commerce.

The purpose of this study is to reveal relations between access to electricity and advancement in a socio-economic condition in rural areas of developing countries. Recently, multi-dimensional aspects of poverty, for example, economy, education, and health, has been increasingly focused on, and access to modern energy such as electricity is one Cited by: Assessment of access to electricity and the socio-economic impacts in rural areas of developing countries Article (PDF Available) in Energy Policy 36(6) June with 5, Reads.

A vast amount of literature on electric mobility discusses the user acceptance and whether electric vehicles are an attractive option for customers (see Garcia &Miguel, andAxsen et socio-economic impacts of electric transmission corridors book, ). In this research, environmental impacts of various alternative fueled delivery trucks including battery electric, diesel, diesel-electric hybrid, and compressed natural gas trucks were analyzed.

Types of Environmental Impacts. It is important to understand the environmental impacts associated with producing power from renewable sources such as wind, solar, geothermal, biomass, and hydropower. The exact type and intensity of environmental impacts varies depending on the specific technology used, the geographic location, and a.

The dangers associated to overhead power lines ranges from natural or artificial interference, radiation (electric and magnetic fields), environmental, impact on government due to land tenure system, community impacts related to socio-economic impacts of electric transmission corridors book construction and operation of transmission lines, and interference on agricultural lands amongst others.

Excellent infrastructure is the backbone and chief driver of socio-economic development, which every country strives to achieve. In the US during the s and s, massive and strategic investment was made to build world-class interstate highway systems and transportation infrastructure.

China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) is the largest infrastructure scheme in our lifetime, bringing unprecedented geopolitical and economic shifts far larger than previous rising powers. Concerns about its environmental impacts are legitimate and threaten to thwart China’s ambitions, especially since there is little precedent for analysing and planning for environmental impacts of Cited by: 9.

Where potential for significant socio-economic impacts is identified, these interactions will be subject to more detailed assessment. Where potential impacts will need to be mitigated up-front by the developer as a condition of consent, it has been assumed that the residual impacts will not give rise to significant socio-economic impacts.

In the siting of new electric transmission facilities, including high-voltage transmission lines, as defined in s.

proposed Manitoba-Minnesota Transmission Project (MMTP). The MMTP project includes: A kV AC transmission line linking the Dorsey Converter Station to the international border between Manitoba and Minnesota.

The capital cost of the transmission line is estimated to be $ million (in dollars). The annual operating and maintenance costs. would help Armenia adapt to climate change while advancing socio-economic development aims. The Report is divided into three parts - Part 1: The Armenian Context, Part 2: Socio-Economic Impacts of Climate Change in Armenia, and Part 3: Conclusions and Policy Recommendations.

Transmission Project The Manitoba-Minnesota Transmission Project (MMTP) is a transmission line that would send electricity to the United States and allow Manitoba Hydro to receive electricity during emergencies.

Manitoba Hydro will look at what effects the project might cause the environment and how to avoid or lessen those effects. However, land impacts from utility-scale solar systems can be minimized by siting them at lower-quality locations such as brownfields, abandoned mining land, or existing transportation and transmission corridors [1, 2].

Smaller scale solar PV arrays, which can be built on homes or commercial buildings, also have minimal land use impact. Follow. Submissions from PDF.

On the other hand, socio-economic inequalities between villages related to caste status and household expenditure remain strong predictors. These findings highlight the importance of socio-economic barriers to rural electricity access and alleviate concerns about remoteness and population density as obstacles to grid by: Regulations covering corridors for electric utility transmission lines are traced from to the present responsibilities of the Federal Power Commission.

Appendixes include technical more» information requirements for siting nuclear power plants and a summary of state power plant siting legislation. Electric Vehicles (EVs) have been hailed as a cost-efficient solution for Icelanders due to relatively low domestic energy prices, but this paper finds that since EVs are generally more expensive to purchase than traditional cars the average consumer must drive for years before truly receiving the benefits of lowCited by: 1.

Under the European Union (EU) energy efficiency targets that Romania has assumed, increasing the share of solar energy has been one of the main points to be considered. The most important solar energy resources are found in the lowlands and low hills in southern and south-eastern parts of the country.

The clearing of electrical transmission lines could increase grazing capacities by animal unit months per year per kilometre of right-of-way. Pipelines were found to have less impacts on agriculture than electrical lines.
