The Bioenergy for Sustainable local energy services and 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 “Prospects for bioenergy development in seven market sectors in Sub-Saharan Africa: Preliminary findings” to be held on 10th February, 2021 from 11.00 am– 12.30 pm (GMT).
About the BSEAA programme
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 research focus is on identifying and investigating commercially viable opportunities for the development of anaerobic digestion (AD), gasification and combustion technologies for electricity and/or heat generation in the output range 10 kWe to 5 MWe, with a Technology Readiness Level (TRL) of 5+.
About the webinar
Following a comprehensive top-down scoping of bioenergy projects across a long list of bioenergy value chains (pathways) in 10 target countries in SSA, the BSEAA2 team identified seven promising market sectors (referred to as demand sectors) 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.
This webinar aims to share preliminary findings and insights generated from this in-depth evaluation of seven demand sectors to provide practitioners, investors, researchers and other interested stakeholder groups latest information on the prospects for bioenergy uptake and development in these sectors.
