A member of CIPS’ Energy Specialist Knowledge Group is calling for organisations to donate portable petrol power generation sets to help with the relief effort in Nepal after April’s major earthquake.
Martin Rawlings, director of Blizzard Utilities (and former chair of the group), said the country is still having problems with electricity supply.
“Most of their power comes from India and a very few local plants,” he said. “In the earthquake all of these sources were knocked out so they are reliant on small portable generators. Outside Kathmandu they are non-existent. This is a big ask but I’m sure there are organisations that could assist.”
