dc.description.abstract The majority of population in Africa lacks access of sustainable energy, and a lot of countries in African depend on traded energy. Rwanda has a massive vision comprises exploitation of little resources it has despite the fact of replying to the currently energy demand, development of private sector, poverty eradication, financial inclusiveness, and so on. Biogas technology showed area linking all components cited, Rwanda share the same problems with others African countries where people from rural areas do not have enough energy access in their daily life activities and they depend much on biomass like firewood, solid waste, agricultural products, wastes from animal, ... in order to fulfil energy demand for cooking, and other purpose on their daily life activities, and there are many disadvantages of these traditional fuels such as they release harmful gases, they carrier ineffective energy and it is difficult to manage their heat released, most of them they are environmental not safe and it is a poverty contributor also a burden on country development. Small scale biogas technology is one of the solution to those issues above because it is more efficiency and non-conventional sources of energy at which can employed on responding to the low level income and rural area energy need also it used to combat fossil fuel combustion health effects and environmental aspects at a low cost Rwanda develop many programs and projects with aim of increasing the quality of life of all Rwandans and accelerated poverty reduction programs like EDPRS’s, One Cow per Family, Girinka munyarwanda, etc. which can make easy and feasible the project of biogas technology, this thesis drive on production of energy with small scale biogas digesters and introduces, discusses various potential tools and feasibility studies that this technology can fit well and will focus on sites statistical data through which will shows the real situation and be based on making discussions and teaching on awareness on resources already present on field for well recognize everything deal and in what way to exploit benefits as much as possible of small scale biogas mostly for low income households to assist as solution to Rwandan energy sector as well as Rwanda vision through the following innovations; renewable energy built on integrating innovative approaches and knowledge on biogas technology, and agro-slurry, ecosystem recovery, occupation establishment, generation of profits, reduction of poverty for rural and protection on social level, from there are various opportunities to attract more investors to invest in the sector and the possibilities of financial support will be higher and the country will benefits in selling carbon credits. en_US
