In Sierra Leone low grades of energy dominate the energy scene; about 87% of the total energy used in Sierra Leone is traditional fuels, that is, firewood and charcoal. In terms of cooking, wood is the predominant household energy source and it accounts for about 92% of the domestic energy use while charcoal accounts for 4.8%. Electricity and gas between them account for only 0.4% of household energy consumption. The petroleum product used in households is predominantly kerosene, which contributes about 2.7%. [1]
