Sri Lanka Renewable Energy

Promoting Renewable Energy as a Driver for Sustainable Development and Mitigation of Climate Change in Sri Lanka

The Sri Lankan tourism industry is booming with number of tourists increasing every year. Hotel and restaurant facilities need to deal with increasing amount of waste and growing energy costs. Biogas production is a sustainable win-win solution to manage their waste while contributing to their energy needs and reducing energy costs. However, development of biogas technology requires strong technical capacity of biogas units' constructors. The lack of after-sale service and maintenance of biogas units as well as lack of SME appropriate entrepreneurial capacities has hampered sustainability of past projects.

The Project aims to create an enabling environment for a large-scale dissemination of biogas technology for SMEs in tourism industry and households. To achieve it, the project targets the demand side as well as the supply side by mobilising the manufacture and construction private sector, micro finance institutions (MFIs), tourism industry and the society as a whole.
