A leap forward for Samoa

Proposed plans for diversifying the country’s energy supply, to include energy produced from biomass gasification, are now a step closer to becoming reality.

Biomass gasification is a process that uses organic material to make electricity.

The Government of Samoa, the Samoan Trust Estates Corporation and the Scientific Research Organisation of Samoa have been investigating the potential of using Samoa’s senile coconut plantations to produce energy for a number of years.

The proposed project seeks to establish the biomass supply chain necessary to attract external investment to construct the country’s first gasification facility.

Problem Tree Bioenergy ACSE Samoa

Problem Tree Bioenergy ACSE Samoa

A thorough problem analysis has been carried out during the national ACSE consultation workshop, which brought together more than 50 representatives of public private and regional stakeholders. Cause and effect relations were discussed leading to the construction of a problem tree in a participatory process. Participants identified the core problem as Samoa being highly dependent on imported fossil fuels.
