To leverage successful technologies and best practices from the region through (1) peer-to-peer exchanges and (2) a capitalisation conference. The conference will bring together all the supply chain stakeholders, including rice husk producers, garment factory owners and international brands who can play a role in adapting their purchasing specifications according to environmental considerations.
- One study tour will enable 10 Cambodian rice millers to visit Vietnam to benchmark already proven rice husk processing technologies; the study tour will include technical training on rice husk processing technologies facilitated by local rice millers engaged in the project;
- The other study tour will provide 10 garment factory owners with knowledge on renewable energy boiler equipment, and replicate successful technologies in Cambodia;
- Finally, the capitalisation conference will bring together rice millers, factory owners, international brands and public authorities to raise awareness about the environmental footprint of the manufacturing industry and introduce alternative options for a sectoral switch to sustainable fuel consumption in the Cambodian garment industry.
To develop and establish procedures and mechanisms to make electricity generated from biogas a feasible option for rural off-grid communities in the Sri Lankan dry zone
This exchange activity aims to implement a collaborative process seeking to (i) consolidate the use of biodigester technology in Costa Rica and (ii) accelerate the adoption of biogas solutions by small and medium-scale livestock farmers in the country.
This knowledge exchange activity aims to explore and share successful financial models, identifying the specific factors that make different models relevant and replicable in their context.
Building on the 2017 event, “Financing Renewable Energy in Southeast Asia”, Nexus aims to organise an even more valuable knowledge exchange and further support capacity building among sustainable and renewable energy entrepreneurs.
