Sustainable energy plant

Sustainable energy plant

Ghana experiences regular power cuts, and the majority of people use firewood, charcoal or fossil gas to prepare food, which puts pressure on natural forests and non-renewable energy sources. The centre will pioneer the introduction of a photovoltaic-biogas hybrid plant for independent production and storage of both electricity and biogas for cooking, and thereby demonstrate that there are alternatives to the unsustainable practices that are commonly used. The leftover biogas slurry can be used to produce compost.
