PRACTICAL ANSWERS - ENERGY
Energy access is a key element to development, especially in more remote rural communities where mains electricity does not reach. In these locations there are a number of small-scale renewable energy technologies that can be used. These technologies include: micro-hydro, solar energy and wind, as well as more traditional biomass technologies such as biogas, crop waste, biofuels and stoves.


BIOGAS
Biogas is produced from organic material such as animal dung that has decomposed in the absence of oxygen making a mixture that is mainly made up of methane. It can be used directly for cooking and lighting or for generating electricity.
