This research assignment investigates the challenges and opportunities affecting the adoption and roll out of bioenergy across Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), and will provide recommendations on affordable, accessible and innovative bioenergy technologies that will improve poor people’s access to bioenergy.
Access to energy is a key constraint to development in many parts of Africa, despite good supplies of energy sources including bioenergy. Knowledge on the most promising sources and technologies for converting biofuels to accessible and affordable energy is impartial and fragmented. The BSEAA research sets out to address this.
LTS is leading and managing this research assignment, which includes:
Value and benefits
This research will define the content of BSEAA Phase II (within the TEA programme), which is likely to include further targeted research and may lead to direct DFID investment in promising bioenergy technologies in Sub-Saharan Africa. The overall goal is to promote affordable, accessible and innovative bioenergy technologies that will improve poor people’s access to bioenergy.
