Energy Use Surveys (CWS, WWS, LWS)



Nova’s Detailed Energy Survey (DES) is often accompanied by empirical measurements of households’ energy usage through instruments such as the Coal Weighing Survey, Wood Weighing Survey and LPG Weighing Survey. These surveys typically run for a few weeks on end during which time the fieldworkers visit each household on a regular basis to measure their coal, wood or LPG stock. Where a household’s solid fuel use is of particular interest, the surveys are often supplemented with stove temperature measurements and fire logbooks (kept by the households) to determine fire cycles and estimate the average amount of coal and/or wood used per household per fire.


Nova offers a range of services to corporate entities, governmental organisations and NGOs including Community Surveys, Consultancy and Corporate Social Responsibility Project Research and Development.
