Good initiative. Awareness and knowledge about renewable are must today looking at climate change and other problems. Your project will create a great impact as in rural areas people generally use wood as a fuel. This project will also decrease the cutting of trees.

Your idea is good and it looks it would have a great impact on society. I would appreciate it if you could vote and comment on my idea as well

Any renewable energy source is regarded as exceptionally important in our modern society. With a changing climate that is resulting in intense droughts, devastating hurricanes and a diminishing ozone, investing in a clean, renewable energy source is definitely the way of the future. Biogas is fast becoming a valuable energy source which is contributing to the electric capacity which is being generated throughout the world. A recent UNEP report stated that the total amount of renewable energy which was generated in 2012 exceeded 1 470 GW which was a dramatic increase from the amount generated in 2011.

Currently renewable energy accounts for one fifth of the overall energy consumption used around the world. Forestry, crops, sewage, industrial residue, animal waste, and municipal waste are all used to create the biogas renewable energy. Traditionally biogas was used for cooking and heating purposes but these days it is being used for a number of other things as well. By the year 2050 it is thought that biogas will account for around one third of all energy.

Biogas is already being used in rural areas as well as in urban areas but only few people know about it. This project will raise awareness to all Malawians and bring positive impact
