Lake Kivu in Rwanda includes 300 billion cubic metres of carbon dioxide and 60 billion cubic metres of methane.
The gases are now getting taken off from the lake by way of the KivaWatt job with the methane getting pumped to a nearby electric power plant.
At existing only 51% of Rwandans have access to energy.
By 2024, the federal government hopes this will increase to 100% and it is hoped an expansion of the KivaWatt task will assistance make that achievable.
