Abstract
Southern African countries possess substantial sugarcane industries that could also be a significant source of sustainable heat, power and biofuels. This study reviews the bioenergy potential from sugarcane and associated development costs in seven sugar-producing countries in the Southern African Development Community (SADC), aiming to provide a foundation for more detailed country-level studies exploring practical potential. The Southern Africa Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (SACREE) has specifically identified the potential for sugarcane bioenergy development in Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), Malawi, Mozambique, South Africa, Tanzania, Zambia and Zimbabwe. With support from development agencies and engagement by government policy makers, the seven sugar-producing countries could convert this high-yielding energy crop into expanded, sustainable bioenergy production.
