Green participates in Africa Biogas and Clean Cooking Conference

APRIL 6TH, 2016

This week Green traveled to Addis Ababa in Ethiopia in order to join Africa's largest convention on clean cooking. Held by the Africa Biogas Partnership Programme, the ‘Africa Biogas and Clean Cooking Conference’ happens from 5 to 7 April, 2016.  The event brings together people and institutions from different backgrounds to discuss the challenges and to explore solutions for Africa's clean cooking sector. 

As a member of the Global Alliance for Clean Cookstoves, Green actively engaged in the conference as a speaker on the session about progress with ethanol in Ethiopia's clean cooking sector. The discussion was moderated by our partner Mr. Harry Stokes from Project Gaia, The session clarified some main questions regarding the reach of Afirca's cookstove program, potential for scaling-up, ways for addressing primary constraints and opportunities for profitability with the production of Social Bioethanol in small-scale plants. The session also counted with the participation of Mr. Desalegn Getaneh, from GAIA Association and Mr. Wubshet Tadele, a carbon finance specialist for PGI. 

Overall, the conference is a great success. Its strategic focus and wide reach enables to create an intersection between the need for creating a sustainable market-based energy sector and the huge need of millions of people to access power and fuels, especially in remote rural areas. This is expected to drive Africa’s efforts towards reducing the global greenhouse emissions using sustainable energy sources, like the social bioethanol produced in Green's micro distilleries.

To know more about the forum, access the official call for the event and read about it on Hivos platform.
