What follows in this report is an overview of bioenergy projects from around the world, mostly implemented by United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO), with funding from Global Environment Facility (GEF). While the scope, technologies, applications, descriptions and results vary, they are united by the goal to achieve reliable, safe and affordable clean energy for people in low income countries, bringing clean energy to some of the world’s most vulnerable and under-served people, at the same time, helping to reduce dependency on fossil fuels and the associated greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions. We are pleased to share with you a look into the relatively small, but hugely promising bioenergy sector.

From project planning, development, and rollout, to key lessons learned, and a brief analysis of the sector at large, readers will gain helpful insights into what it takes to provide locally available bioenergy solutions at household, community and industrial levels.
