When we say "biogas with an entrepreneurial twist" we mean that (B)energy makes biogas accessible through independent entrepreneurs. Everybody earns, nobody depends! This is unique and only possible through a smart business model that engages 100% local players.
Schon vor mehr als einem Jahr hat sich Katrin Pütz entschieden, ihre kleinen Biogas-Anlagen, die sie bisher nur für den Einsatz in Afrika gefertigt hat, nun auch für den deutschen Markt anzubieten. Da war ganz klar, dass das aktuelle Modell, das sie für Deutschland entworfen hat, auch hier in Isingen zum Einsatz kommen wird.
I love challenges that seem impossible. Biogas without Western Aid is exactly this type of challenge, kind of a dream nobody used to believe in. I remember exactly how it hit me when I first encountered the practices of aid organizations in Africa. I knew immediately: this cannot be right. Why does the approach of Western aid feel so wrong to me? Or am I wrong? I need time to think.
So far biogas has been promoted as a technology for rural areas, aid organizations have branded this magical solution as something for the poor. How great that this is changing and how wonderful that people who can, simply afford it and switch to biogas for nobel reasons. We have interviewed one of our well-off biogas users.

To understand the unusual approach of (B)energy requires knowdlege of our ethics. Our ultimate goal is to show that biogas can be implemented in a social business approach. But why without aid?
