Zimbabwe turns to biogas to benefit rural communities
The Rural Electrification Agency (REA) of Zimbabwe, a subsidiary of utility company Zesa Holdings, is looking to install a total 64 biogas plants across the nation.
The REA, according to reports, has called for bids from companies and agents experienced in he design, sizing, positioning, construction and installation of institutional biogas digester units.
The biogas digesters will be installed throughout Zimbabwe's eight provinces, promoting the development of biogas technology. This rollout of biogas plants also coincides with Zesa's inability to meet electricity requirements.
Zimbabwe generates around 1,500MW a year and imports approximately 150MW. To date, around 400 biogas plants are built in Zimbabwe's rural areas.
