Title
Biogas in Rural Nigeria
Authors (non HEDON members)
J.O. Olajide
Abstract
Rural areas require low-cost energy, mainly from locally available sources because these areas are not always connected to the main power grid and the cost of generating electricity in developing countries is high. It is important that these alternative sources are renewable, as there are ecological constraints on the mass exploitation of trees and other agro-forest products. The development of low-cost wind-power and solar-energy sources will remain relatively costly and they may often he difficult and expensive to adapt to local conditions. On the other hand, biogas offers better prospects as it is cheaper, and may be more appropriate in rural areas where biodigestible wastes abound.
