Biofuels: Bridging the Urban and Rural Fuel Divide

Biofuels as a clean cooking fuel class is emerging as a commercial solution in many regions. Cooking with biofuels has the promise of offering both health and climate benefits to consumers but so far has had limited traction in the market. Today however, several companies are finding innovative ways to bring these fuels closer to consumers and improve affordability. With the scale achieved by KOKO Networks in bioethanol-based cooking and several biogas players expanding globally, biofuels are fast becoming renewable options for clean cooking. Building a conducive policy environment, increasing available capital, and growing the number of participating companies is essential to scale further.

This session will discuss the progress, opportunities, and challenges in the sector from the perspective of industry players and stakeholders working across Africa and Asia. Speakers will highlight business and policy opportunities in the biofuels sector and share future opportunities for expansion.
