With SEE-CC, the Netherlands Enterprise Agency introduces a new private-sector approach to promote clean, affordable cooking solutions. These solutions include biodigesters and higher-tier (3, 4 and 5) cookstoves such as e-cookers and advanced biomass stoves. The programme will carry out activities in partnership with the EnDev programme between 2021-2025. 

The programme has 2 components:

African Biodigester Component - ABC

ABC is a 5-year programme (2021-2025). The programme helps develop and strengthen demand, supply and the enabling environment to create sustainable biodigester markets in 5 African countries: Burkina Faso, Kenya, Mali, Niger and Uganda.

ABC aims to facilitate the construction and installation of 50,000 small-scale biodigesters by the end of 2025. This will result in energy access for at least 250,000 people. It will also reduce yearly CO2 equivalent emissions by over 180,000 tonnes.

Higher Tier Cooking Component - HTCC

HTCC is a 5-year programme (2020-2025) that aims to further strengthen the supply side of the clean cooking sector. It does this by helping small and medium-sized enterprises improve their business operations, get access to finance for scale and innovation and by helping build an enabling environment in support of clean cooking. HTCC aims to reach 600,000 people in Bangladesh, Cambodia, Ethiopia and Uganda.
