Making Energy Markets Work for the Poor
PDF File Size: 687 KB | Download   
The Bio gas Support Program (BSP) applies a market-based approach with a
pro-poor focus to disseminating bio gas plants in Nepal. The program encourages private sector participation through a variety of supportive measures, and ensures private sector accountability for constructing high-quality bio gas plants and providing technical back-up services. Important to
program sustainability are the wide-ranging capacity development measures it undertakes before turning activities over to private sector and government agencies. The program has instituted a number of innovative measures to make the technology affordable for the poor. These include providing an additional subsidy for communities that are poor, disadvantaged or based in
remote locations, and encouraging micro finance institutions to extend convenient loans to the poor. BSP has played a key role in establishing the Alternative Energy Promotion Center (AEPC), the national apex body for promotion of renewable energy solutions in Nepal. As of December 2010, 225,356
bio gas plants have been constructed throughout all 75 districts in the country. Currently, nearly 20,000 plants are being constructed every year.
