The challenge

Firewood and charcoal are the main sources of cooking fuel for the poor in Kampala, Uganda. These fuels are expensive, their fumes and soot are toxic, and producing charcoal leads to widespread deforestation. Poor families use a significant part of their daily income on fuel.

The innovation

Green Bio Energy produces and distributes clean energy solutions to low income families in Uganda. Its product range includes energy efficient cook stoves and environmentally friendly briquettes, made from recycled bio material. Compared to traditional charcoal briquettes, Green Bio Energy’s solution reduces indoor air pollution and CO2 emission while tackling deforestation for charcoal production.

The impact

Green Bio Energy’s products are being distributed through a network of micro-entrepreneurs and distribution partners. The social business has already reached more than 20,000 customers across Uganda.
