    Energy crisis resulting from complete dependency on biomass fuel is becoming a major challenge for the conservation of forest resources in Ethiopia. The aim of this study was to quantify the main biomass fuel supply and also examine the household energy consumption pattern in Debre Berhan town, Ethiopia. It was hypothesized that there is spatial and temporal variation of biomass fuel entering into the town. Moreover, it was expected that socioeconomic variables affect the energy consumption pattern at a household level. Point census was conducted to quantify the amount of biomass fuel brought into the town. As a complement, a structured questionnaire comprised of open- and closed-ended questions was developed and administered to a total of 117 households. This was carried out to collect information on domestic energy consumption pattern in the town. The results revealed that the amoun.. View More»
