Abstract

Agro-industries have the potential to make a substantial contribution to sustainable energy supply in Africa, including energy access in rural areas. This paper gives an overview of the landscape for energy and agro-industries in Malawi. It focuses on the sugar industry and the potential for it to produce electricity through cogeneration and the extent to which this can enable energy access in rural communities. This includes identifying the drivers and barriers to wider use of renewable energy by agro-industries. The research involved a group discussion and individual semi-structured interviews with participants from key government departments, businesses, research institutes and international agencies. This paper found that energy sector reform, the proposed feed-in tariff for renewable energy, and risk are the key issues for investment in this area.
