Model Fuelwood for Sustainable Energy Supply and Livelihood Development

Sep 4, 2019

The pilot project on “Promoting Sustainable Biomass Energy Production and Modern Bio-Energy Technologies” (Biomass Project Phase 1) was completed at the end of year 2018. This five-year project, implemented by the Sri Lanka Sustainable Energy Authority (SLSEA) along with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and Food and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations (FAO) promoted the production and use of biomass across the nation. The Project worked with the Ministry of Power and Renewable Energy for guidance and technical input, while the Forest Department, Ministry of Plantation Industries, and the Ministry of Mahaweli Development and Environment provided resources and expertise towards establishing a sustainable biomass energy source.

Since 2013, the Project piloted technological applications with locally manufactured technologies among Small and Medium Enterprises (SME), and systematically promoted renewable energy through fuelwood production, growing models and collection systems across Sri Lanka.
