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 is holding a webinar on “Key trends in commercial bioenergy development in Sub-Saharan Africa” to be held on 27th of May, 2020 from 11.00 am– 12 pm (BST). E4tech, as part of the wider BSEAA2 team, has taken the lead in identifying and assessing viable business models that could accelerate bioenergy deployment.
The Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy (BEIS) commissioned the Energy Innovation Needs Assessment (EINA) programme to help them prioritise public investment in low carbon innovation across the energy system.
After 44 months of activities E4tech successfully completed the “Efficient firewood utilization in households” project, part of the Serbian-German cooperation programme “Development of a Sustainable Bioenergy Market in Serbia “, run by GIZ, the German development agency. The project’s main objective was to improve the efficiency of firewood use in households. An awareness building campaign was implemented in the chosen pilot regions of Leskovac and Vlasotince (“South Serbia Region”) as well as Užice and Bajina Bašta (“South-West Serbia Region”), with the municipalities Ivanjica and Nova Varoš serving as “Control Region” in the impact evaluation of the undertaking.
