In line with the United Nations (UN) Sustainable Development Goal No. 7 (SDG-7) – Access to Clean Energy for All – the ARDA is committed to supporting its Members and other stakeholders to promote the use of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) across Africa.
The ARDA LPG Work Group (WG) will not only encourage the transition from biomass to LPG as a cleaner cooking fuel alternative, but also promote the use of LPG as a fuel for power generation across the continent. The LPG Work Group serves to work with Members and other stakeholders to develop and implement a sustainable framework geared towards developing LPG projects across Africa.
The ARDA LPG WG will work with its Members and other stakeholders to displace biomass with LPG as the primary fuel for heating and cooking, thereby reducing deforestation. In addition, the LPG WG will work to establish an LPG supply chain aimed at supporting gas-to-power technology across the continent to lower carbon intensity and reduce the cost of power.
