Energy

Welcome to the Gamos Energy WebPages. Here you will find information and resources concerning Gamos' most recent work in energy. Clean and efficient energy supplies are vital to sustainable development both at the individual and country level and Gamos has been involved in many innovative projects on both of these levels.

Over the last ten years African governments have moved increasingly towards decentralised budgets, giving local authorities increased powers and budgets to govern areas that include both rural and urban population. Yet while cities have a municipal authority to consider new ways of supplying energy to its urban citizens, those governing Africa's rural poor in small and medium towns in the surrounding rural hinterlands have rarely considered energy infrastructure.

AGRo-industries and Clean Energy in Africa. This project brings together a multidisciplinary team to research a relatively new terrain of Agro-industries and Energy, combining new approaches to political economy analysis with business development, innovation and participatory approaches to understanding the potential role that agro industries can play in widening rural access to cleaner energy options.

Agro industries constitute a major source of rural employment and are significant contributors to the economy of many subSaharan African (SSA) countries, and constitute a major source of income for millions of small scale farming outgrowers.  Agro industries in sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), such as tea, coffee and sugar estates, already utilise energy for their processing and, on occasions, supply energy to their employees within their estates. Rural communities within and in the vicinity of agro-industrial estates derive several direct and indirect benefits from such cleaner energy investments.

Energy
Urbanisation rates in Africa are the highest in the world, and in most Sub Saharan countries service delivery is inadequate to keep up with the needs. African populations remain amongst the poorest in the world, and efforts to achieve the energyrelated dimensions of the MDGs have in most cases not had significant impact on urban populations. The situation is often dire, with cities scarcely able to provide for their existing population, let alone allocate resources to minimise the longerterm environmental risks facing them such as global warming- leading to on-going crisis management and potentially spiralling declines in welfare and economic growth.

Championing a landscape changing idea

Pleased to note that our championing has led to a 5 year programme funded by UK Aid (DFID).  The work focuses on modern energy cooking services, which incorporates the eCook ideas, and includes a systematic intention to change the narrative on cooking.  The programme will be officially launched in Oct 2018.
