Biogas by Women for Women
This project will enable farmers in Kenya to turn animal waste into clean energy and increase their agricultural productivity. The project aims to install 4,000 biodigesters at smallholder farms with a focus on women sales agents and beneficiaries. Sistema.bio will strengthen last mile distribution and service capacity through the recruitment and training of new sales agents and technicians. The modular biodigesters will be sold with productive use appliances, offering customers economic savings, increased productivity and income opportunities. With EEP Africa financing, Sistema.bio will expand into new regions and develop a gender-inclusive approach to recruitment and training.
Outcome and Impact
The project aims to sell 4,000 biodigesters and create jobs for more than 80 women. The systems will generate 7000 MWh of clean energy per year, save EUR 1.1M annually in energy-related expenditure, and reduce 7,400 tonnes of CO2e emissions by replacing wood, charcoal and other non-renewable energy sources. With a 10-year warranty for each biodigester, the long-term impact of the project is significant.
