In partnership with the Egyptian Environmental Affairs Agency, the objective of this project is to remove the technical, institutional, informational, financial and other market barriers to the increasing use of biomass energy in promoting sustainable rural development in Egypt and in reducing the negative global and local environmental impacts associated with the use of fossil fuels and the environmentally not sound management of agricultural and solid waste.

This is envisaged to be achieved by :
i. Testing the technical, and in particular, the economic and financial feasibility of selected bioenergy technologies on the basis of new business and financing models, and developing further the financial, institutional, and market strategies for their large scale replication ;
ii. Supporting the development and adoption of an enabling policy framework to implement and leverage financing for the recommended strategies ;
iii. Building the capacity of the supply side to market, finance and deliver rural bioenergy services ; and institutionalizing the support provided by the project to facilitate sustainable growth of the market after the end of the project.
