03. ENABLING ENVIRONMENT FOR FUEL WOOD SUPPLIERS

This component is primarily aimed at building the enabling environment for commercial investment for fuel wood suppliers and biomass energy technology companies, in order to build a larger local market for sustainably grown fuel wood. The Ministry of Power and Energy (MOPE) itself, realizing the dire need for sustainable and viable fuelwood suppliers (exchanges) has initiated a plan to establish fuelwood depots with the participation of non-governmental or private sector entities, supported by technology providers and banks. The expected outcome from this component is increased number of investment projects from commercial banks, and increased the confidence in the industrial sector on the longer term sustainability of supply.
