Micro finance model for dissemination of biogas technology in Bangladesh

Aim of the project was the demonstration of a new finance model by the University of New South Wales to disseminate environmental friendly technologies in Bangladesh. This model described a self-sustaining mechanism for recovering the costs of capital expensive renewable energy technologies through energy businesses. In this project, small biogas plants connected to latrines produce methane to generate the electricity for the rural costumers.
