What is #BiogasUnite

Who are we?

We are biogas entrepreneurs and companies who work to make biogas accessible in Africa, but struggle to compete with foreigen 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 we need a reliable environment where we are protected from market distortion and unfair competition.

What is the probem?

Especially in Africa, foreign donors get involved in biogas progarms and projects - to the disadvantage of local businesses, who cannot compete wit free or highly subsidized biogas systems.

What is our plan?

Together will all private entities in the bioags sector we want to raise awareness for the need for clear and fair rules in the sector - including a limitation and strict regulation of foreign aid in the sector.n

Wednesday Meetings

Don't cross your fingers and hope others will do it - take responsibility, every voice and every opinion counts. Please sign up now and join the next discussion meeting. Together we can set new rules for entrepreneurship in Africa.

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.

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
