Presentation Transcript

Slide 1: 

Strategies for Biomass Energy The SADC Programme for Energy Conservation (ProBec) Freddie O. Motlhatlhedi, Coordinator SADC Energy Projects and Programmes, South Africa

Slide 2: 

- fulfilling energy needs today – Best practices from the SADC Programme for Biomass Energy Conservation (ProBEC) presented by Freddie O. Motlhatlhedi Co-ordinator SADC Energy Programmes Biomass Energy ¿ and tomorrow ?

Slide 3: 

Situation of biomass energy Importance Accounts for 80% of RE worldwide Accounts for 70 – 90 % of the energy used in sub-Saharan Africa Absolute number of people using biomass for cooking and heating will increase Sidelined in energy policies and strategies

Slide 4: 

Situation of biomass energy Advantages Low cost Ready to use Locally available Disadvantages of traditional (inefficient) use Enormous health risk High work burden CO2 emissions Land degradation

Slide 5: 

Lessons from SADC Programme for Biomass Energy Conservation in Southern Africa (ProBEC) All population should be able to satisfy their energy needs in an affordable and sustainable manner Biomass energy if used efficiently- is an affordable and a sustainable option Vision Conviction

Slide 6: 

Measures to use biomass energy in an affordable and sustainable manner Using efficient technologies Applying energy-efficient techniques Using other renewable energy sources Producing firewood sustainably

Slide 7: 

Raising awareness amongst biomass energy users Networking throughout the region and beyond Lobbying for biomass energy Enhancing the creation of business opportunities for stove suppliers Integrated approach to achieve affordable and sustainable use of biomass energy

Slide 8: 

Additional jobs and income Impacts of improved biomass energy use Empowerment of women Reduction in respiratory diseases & infant mortality Mitigation of impacts of HIV/AIDS Reduction of CO2 emissions mdg 1 mdg 3 mdg 5 mdg 6 mdg 7

Slide 9: 

ProBECs recommendation to the RE 2004 Recognize sustainable biomass energy as an inherent part of renewable energy Give a higher priority and long term support to efficient and sustainable use of biomass energy Integrate biomass energy into all energy policies and strategies

Slide 10: 

Is a viable option to fulfil the energy needs of the majority of Africa's population of today and tomorrow! Biomass Energy -used efficiently- But we have to act now!

Slide 11:
