Manifesto of BiogasUnite

Biogas is not for beneficiaries.

Biogas is for everyone. It is a solution for clean cooking. It is produced from organic waste, and it can serve millions of people with a clean energy source. It is renewable. It is climate neutral. It is profitable, and it makes a big difference.

Biogas projects fail.

Aid organizations promote biogas for the poor. Implemented in biogas projects. Most biogas systems have failed. Beneficiaries were left alone. And lost trust. The reputation of biogas is widely negative. Because of aid!

Africa does not need aid.

Aid distorts markets. It creates unfair conditions for entrepreneurs. The African private biogas sector cannot compete with free biogas technology. Local businesses fail. Africans lose their jobs. Then they need aid.

Protect entrepreneurs.

BiogasUnite demands an end of development aid in the biogas sector. Accountability. African governments to take the lead. Support the private biogas sector. Talk to biogas entrepreneurs.

What international aid organizations and donors are doing in the field of household biogas in Africa has largely failed the private sector. We demand to end aid.

What is our plan?

Our partner's voice

Our goal at Eco Amet Solutions is to promote the “going back to green” agenda across the continent of Africa. The initiatives at (B)energy attracted me to reach out to them. And after a couple of interactions, I realised it was not just about work but a mission-driven by a strong passion for seeing results. I support the #BiogasUnite initiative, and I firmly believe it is about time we wake up as Africans. Not just in the biogas sector but very applicable to several other “failed/dying” systems.” - David Ewusi-Mensah, Eco Amet Solutions, Ghana
