Appropriate technology

From BioenergyWiki

Jump to: navigation, search

Appropriate technology in its most basic sense is technology which is suited to the local context - socially, culturally, financially, and every other sense.

It can be applied to bioenergy technology, and is sometimes more broadly applied to sustainable practices which are context sensitive. It is closely connected with permaculture.


Appropedia is a wiki which addresses a wide range of topics related to sustainability and development; and is strongest in appropriate technology. The Village Earth Appropriate Technology Wiki Project and How to Live Wiki have both merged with the Appropedia project to form a single wiki.
