Featured Project

The Vietnam Household Biogas Project is installing biogas systems across Vietnam which use waste from household cattle and pigs to create electricity for the home. The project earns one carbon credit for every tonne of greenhouse gas emissions it prevents by avoiding methane emissions from manure and using the gas for energy instead of burning wood or fossil fuels.   

This one-of-a-kind project is spreading renewable energy to households across Vietnam, a country in which 16% of people do not have access to electricity . Most rural households in Vietnam have pigs, cattle or buffalo, and by installing a biogas plant any household with at least two cows or five pigs can create enough energy for their household use. The project installed 88,200 plants in households between 2007 and 2011, bringing clean energy to 440,000 people, and is continuing to expand throughout the country.
