Welcome to SWEACC Green City Cluster meeting
SWEACC's Green City upcoming cluster meeting will focus on Waste to Energy solutions in Africa. We will hear about different projects and solutions that are in place now. The picture on the left is from Lake Kivu in Rwanda. Here they are generating electricity from the methane dissolved in the waters. Methane is a renewable source of inexpensive, stable and environmentally friendly energy. This can benefit Rwanda but also neighbours such as D.R. Congo, Uganda, Burundi and Tanzania.
We can see many business and investment opportunities for Swedish companies in East Africa. Some of these project opportunities are participation in developing renewable energy projects based on hydro, solar, biomass and wind power solutions. Provide consultancy work on studies and designs. Be part of engineering, procurement, and construction (EPC) of the green energy projects. Supply of equipment as most markets in East Africa need to upgrade and expand their transmission networks. Besides developing renewable power plants, also develop mini-grid electrification to meet the electricity needs in rural areas.
