Keeping up pace with developments in other parts of the world is very crucial to the industry and consumers. As such, ZERA promotes research and developments in the LPG sector which is currently viewed as a young sector. It is ZERA’s view that more researches needs to be done in the sector as part of introducing efficient technologies and safer ways of using the product.

One area that require research and innovation is how best to introduce piped and metered LPG in Zimbabwe’s domestic and commercial sectors. It should be noted that there are still some residues of fear among consumers on the use of LPG and in some parts of the country. The need to develop pro-consumers research thrust will assist in unlocking the business case among various consumers.
