From a climate perspective: If a fuel wood or charcoal user switches to biogas, the effects on environment and human health are immediate: no more tree logging or combustion of available organic matter, no transport of heavy wood bundles, no smoke/indoor air pollution in kitchens, less need for mineral fertilizer, and better sanitation and hygiene.
From a social good perspective – or why it matters how the technology is brought to the market: Change can only happen from within! A development in the energy field, (B)energy believes, can only sustainably take place when the benefit for the individual is great enough for them to make the necessary effort to get access to it. In (B)energy’s case this means customers need to buy the technology with their own money.
The business opportunities: (B)energy creates are designed to empower people, make them independent, let them gain faith in their own capability of solving their energy struggle with their own means, and eventually facilitate feelings of dignity and pride. (B)energy believes that these effects are better achieved through business opportunities than through charity.
