Established in 2008, PANGEA promotes sustainable African bioenergy investment, policies, and production. As an organisation, we fulfil two roles: membership association and developmental campaigner. Firstly, we act as a unified voice for our diverse membership of European and African bioenergy companies; working to establish an enabling policy environment through lobbying, research, and regular events. Members benefit from our first-rate consultancy experience, extensive contacts network, and events management expertise; while knowing that their interests are well represented at an EU-level. As the world’s boundless enthusiasm for biofuels has begun to be tempered by reservations about their environmentally and social sustainability, our attention has also increasingly been directed at improving the sustainability and equitability of the EU’s involvement in the sector. Rather than unfairly condemning an entire industry, we work to attack the root causes; thereby preserving a uniquely valuable opportunity for both African and European citizens. We support this by promoting bioenergy’s potential in other areas – such as electrifying rural areas through micro- and off-grid generation, or effectively fuelling modern clean cook stoves – which can greatly enhance the quality of life in Africa’s rural communities.
