All-in-one sustainable, affordable & renewable cooking & heating fuel
Gamma Energie produces Clean-Burn Briquettes which are green and renewable energy solutions. The enterprise collects and recycles agro-forestry biomass waste into environmentally sustainable and affordable char-briquettes, which replace wood charcoal and firewood.
Gamma Energie is a for-profit social enterprise providing Clean-Burn Briquettes aimed at climate change mitigation and adaptation. It provides clean and affordable energy solutions to local communities in the form of affordable char briquettes from agroforestry biomass waste.
The enterprise makes revenue through direct sales of its char briquettes to customers which include restaurants, hotels, schools and households in rural and peri-urban settlements.
The Forestry Commission of Ghana (Bamboo and Rattan Development Unit) provides workspace and technical support in incorporating bamboo as part of char briquettes.
Green Africa Youth Organization engages with community to help promote Gamma’s activities and create market awareness.
The SEED Low Carbon Awards 2021 in Ghana, India, Indonesia, South Africa, Thailand and Uganda are sponsored by the International Climate Initiative (IKI) of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).
