Bioenergy for Energy Access in Africa


Key trends in bioenergy development in sub-Saharan Africa


27 May 2020


11.00 am– 12 pm (BST)

The Bioenergy for Sustainable Energy Access in Africa (BSEAA) programme, a constituent programme of the UK Department for International Development’s (DFID) Transforming Energy Access (TEA) programme invites you to a webinar on Key trends in commercial bioenergy development in Sub-Saharan Africa.

BSEAA is a two year research programme with an objective to identify and support the development of innovative, commercial bioenergy pathways and technologies that will accelerate the successful production and use of bioenergy in Sub Saharan Africa (SSA)

The BSEAA2 team has undertaken a comprehensive mapping and top-down scoping of bioenergy projects across a long list of bioenergy value chains (pathways) in the target countries with an aim to determine the most promising pathways and countries for further in-depth investigation undertaken from May 2020 to March 2021.  This investigation involved an assessment of biomass resources, status of technological development, economic potential, applicable business models and institutional frameworks linked to the most promising bioenergy pathways in the ten target countries.

This webinar aims to share key findings and insights generated from this top-down scoping exercise to provide practitioners, investors, researchers and other interested stakeholder groups latest information on the key trends, insights and potential opportunities for bioenergy uptake and development in Sub-Saharan Africa.
