ggf. zzgl. Versand

This study explores the adoption of Biogas as an alternative energy source in low income rural areas of Kenya, with a particular focus on the dairy producing highlands. Biogas production is a highly cost effective source of energy that is clean and easy to maintain. Benefits of biogas include lighting and heating. It has also been considered to be a rich source of slow nutrient release manure with immense benefits to soil fertility

Assessment of potential drivers and barriers in biogas technology adoption as an alternative energy sources has recently become crucial and attractive due to the increasing demand for energy, the limited resource for buying fossil fuel and the environmental concerns. The Ethiopian domestic energy sector relies on a limited range of energy resources with a highest share being biomass that has brought substantial impact on the environment. Although Ethiopia is known by its large livestock resource potential, the level of manure resource utilization in this regard is very low. Overall, over 95 %of the domestic energy needs are met from biomass- based fuels thereby contributing to deforestation, loss of soil nutrients, and organic matter. However, so far, very limited studies were conducted in the area of rural energy in Ethiopia, specifically limited study has been conducted concerning the impacts, drivers and barriers of biogas technology on rural households. However, they did not asses the economic impact, and driving and constraining factors of the technology. Therefore, there is information gap on the benefit of biogas, its drivers and barriers on the study area.

Access to energy resources in Africa presents challenges to human health, environmental health, and economic development. With Kenya striving to achieve the millennium development goals of 2015 and Vision 2030 that seek to integrate the principles of sustainable development into the country s policies and programmes and further reverse loss of environmental resources, there is a need to understand concerns facing the Adoption of Biogas technology in rural households.Ex-post-facto survey research design was used with the target population being drawn from rural households in Lanet Location, Dundori Division of Nakuru North District on a sample size of 324 households. Data was collected through structured questionnaires and analyzed using the SPSS version 17 software.Findings revealed 80.9% of the respondents affirmed that their level of income did influence their decision on investment of Biogas with a skewed distribution of households in favour of households without biogas 246 (75.9 %) in relation to those that had adopted the same 78(24.1%). The costs of setting up a biogas unit was cited as a key impediment to the adoption of the technology

Biogas technology was introduced in Kenya in the mid 1950's. Since then, only a small percentage of farmers in the country have adopted it. In addition, the functioning status and sustainability of the constructed biogas plants has remained unknown. As the potential of the technology to provide energy for cooking and lighting remain unexploited, prices of other energy sources such as kerosene continue to rise and trees continue to be cut down for firewood and charcoal and hence environmental degradation through deforestation. On the other hand, the firewood produces smoky fumes that cause indoor air pollution and while this is happening, animal waste remains unmanaged. This book sheds light on the socioeconomic and technological constraints to adoption and sustainability of biogas technology among dairy cattle farmers in Nakuru districts, Kenya. The book should be useful to all stakeholders in biogas technology who include governmental and nongovernmental organizations, technology extension agents, farmers as well as research and training institutions.

The research on suitable alternative clean energy sources to substitute the use of fossil fuels is rapidly attracting a lot of attention. In this context a wide range of renewable energy sources are considered as options. Biogas is one of these renewable energy sources that is deemed a suitable alternative energy source for both developed and the developing world. In the developing world biogas can be useful particularly for household energy use for warming, cooking, and lighting and hence replacing traditional burning of firewood. However, finding suitable energy crops from which to extract biogas and its implementation without affecting food security is still a debatable issue. This book focused on assessing the potential adoption of Teff for biogas production to meet the energy needs for Ethiopia by analyzing its methane potential at various growth stages, comparing its methane outputs to the methane potentials for maize and wheat in addition to assessing the impact of the biogas production. The intent of this book was written to generate information that can aid policy makers, planners and other relevant stakeholders in policy formulation and decision making process.
