Haiti: Sanble Dife, Chabon Bwa - Charcoal burning

Look at this photo... In Haiti this is called "Sanble Dife," the process of starting a charcoal wood fire.

The metal piece holding the charcoal is called a "Recho".

Charcoal as Cooking fuel: Wikipedia says "Prior to the industrial revolution charcoal was occasionally used as a cooking fuel." I guess the industrial revolution has not yet arrived in Haiti because charcoal is still the main cooking fuel in the country.

Renewable Energy in Haiti - Green Energy

Renewable energy is energy that comes from resources which are continually replenished such as sunlight (Haiti has plenty of that), wind, rain, tides, waves and geothermal heat.

Providing efficient clean energy sources in Haiti would greatly reduce energy costs and dependency on fossil fuels. This is the key to improving Haiti's energy structure.

Presently, Haiti has high-energy costs, low electrification rates, and high dependency on fossil fuels
