New SNV Biomass Waste-to-Energy toolkit

Use of renewable energy sources is critical if we are to achieve the changes needed to transition to a sustainable, low emissions development trajectory. Biomass residues already make an important contribution to meeting global energy demands and their role in the modern energy supply mix is likely to expand significantly in the future.

SNV's REDD+ Energy and Agriculture Programme (REAP) recently developed and published a toolkit for development practitioners, together with the Energy Research Centre of the Netherlands (ECN), TBR Consulting and The Green House.

The toolkit presents a concise set of policy options to project developers and provides best practices and case studies from W2E programmes from three continents of the world and highlighted market intelligence on the potential scope of biomass waste to energy opportunities, including those for small and medium enterprise (SME) level in the supply chain.

The toolkit addresses technology, financing, consumer and environmental protection issues. Key qualitative and quantitative success factors for each waste to energy pathways have also been explored in the toolkit.
