Report on our sustainable, renewable energy project to fight climate change through the production and use of biogas in Haiti
With funding received from HDN, the following was achieved:
This project, entitled “Setting up a methanized biogas system in the commune”, has laid the foundations for a system to popularize and raise awareness of the use of renewable energies and the fight against global warming. In this way, it has seized existing opportunities to meet the challenges and constraints of project implementation, while optimizing opportunities linked to the availability of inputs for the biogas system, such as animal waste and excrement (rabbits, pigs, chickens, oxen), kitchen waste and crop residues for biogas production. The biogas produced will be used as an energy source for cooking food in the community school canteen, to generate electricity for the farm and the biodigestates have been used to produce compost and liquid fertilizers.
The implementation of this project contributes to:
Activities linked to the construction of the biodigester, the selection of potential beneficiaries, the establishment of a community garden with schoolchildren from the community school and the preparation of content for the popularization of project results have been successfully completed. However, delivery of equipment for the purification system and the various gas distribution terminals is a little behind schedule. For the time being, we have not yet started using the gas.
Insecurity and socio-political problems represented major challenges in the development of activities and the supply of certain inputs for the poultry house, including the acquisition of the incubator for hatching eggs. To deal with these problems, we opted for bulk purchases of inputs so as not to have to travel regularly to acquire them. For the incubator, we had to wait for the country’s security situation to improve until July 2023.
The project has a positive impact on the community:
We rely on the generosity and support of individuals like you to help us achieve our mission. There are three main ways you can help us build a brighter future in Haiti.
