The Uganda Energy Challenge

The Ugandan energy sector is dominated by biomass, accounting for 92% of the energy use, followed by petroleum (6%) and electricity (2%) []. The biomass consumption comes from firewood, charcoal and crop residues. Biomass provides all the basic needs for cooking and water heating in rural areas and for most urban households. 

According the Uganda National Household Survey 2009/10 [] of the Uganda Bureau of Statistics (UBOS), wood fuels (wood and charcoal) are still used as main sources of energy for cooking by the majority of households (95%). Rural communities mainly use firewood, while charcoal is the major energy source for the urban situation.

Addressing this challenge, among others, requires an extensive, coordinated and protracted effort by all involved in the developmental response. In the Ugandan context, UNACC is the coordinating partner and key stakeholder whose sole mission is to facilitate efforts of its members and the various partners in the development of the Ugandan clean cooking sector
