About CARENSA:
CARENSA: bringing together researchers, policy-makers, and industry representatives in order to demonstrate the role of sugarcane resources in supporting sustainable energy solutions and improving economic competitiveness within the sugar industry and its affiliates in southern Africa.

Need for CARENSA:
The current cane resource base in southern African countries is over 50 million tones of cane annually. The installation of modern cogeneration systems could translate this cane resource into over 600 GWh of electricity. If this cane were used as a direct feedstock for ethanol production, it could result in 4 billion litres of ethanol annually.

CARENSA Network
Cane Resources Network for Southern Africa (CARENSA) is a thematic network supported by the European Commission's Directorate General for Research (DG-RES).Its primary objective is evaluating the potential for the southern African sugar industry to become a significant supplier of low-carbon bioenergy within the SADC region.
 

Supported by the European Commission DG-Research
