Who are we?
We are biogas entrepreneurs and companies that work to make biogas accessible in Africa, but struggle to compete with foreign aid projects. Missing regulation and coordination of aid involvement leads to difficult conditions for the private sector and a high risk to be outcompeted.
What's our motivation?
We want to make biogas successful, because it is a magical solution for households and institutions. As private sector, to operate we need reliable markets that are protected from market distortion and unfair competition.
What is the probem?
Especially in Africa, foreign donors get involved in biogas programmes and projects - to the disadvantage of local businesses, who cannot compete wit free or highly subsidised biogas systems.
What is our plan?
Together with private entities in the biogas sector we want to raise awareness about the urgent need for clear and fair regulations - including a limitation of foreign aid intervention in the market.
