Bioenergy in the Caribbean


Objective and activities

The project was exploring the extent to which biogas (biomethane) can be used instead of diesel to supply energy to Saint Vincent and the Grenadines. A technical and financial plan of action for decentralised biogas production using small biogas facilities was drawn up. A Project Design Document (PDD) was also produced to open up a co-financing opportunity for the subsequent implementation of the plan of action as part of the Clean Development Mechanism (CDM). Employees of the state-owned power company VINLEC and the Ministry of Agriculture also received training in biogas technology.
