Technologies Powering clean farm-to-fork solutions for a #zerohunger world

More than 40% of food loss in emerging economies occurs during post-harvest and processing. A reliable cold chain is crucial for food security and improved livelihoods. Distributed renewables have a major role to play.

Videos Mini-grids: powering the next green revolution

Our latest video takes a closer look at the potential for decentralized renewables like mini-grids to unlock an explosion of agriculture productivity and jobs in Sub-Saharan Africa and developing Asia.

DRE solutions can aid subsistence and low-income farmers to increase outputs, create savings, and allow for increased income for spending on more nutritious food. 

About the campaign

#PoweringAg

Powering Agriculture is our contribution to a growing movement to make decentralized renewables a central part of scaling agriculture and food productivity in emerging economies in Africa and Asia.

Agriculture is 2-4 times more effective at reducing poverty than other sectors, according to the World Bank. But the potential for increased productivity and improved livelihoods requires access to energy. 

Mainstreaming mini-grids and other distributed renewable energy solutions can help power another Green Revolution.

News & Updates
Energy equity is a full harvest

What does it mean to have energy equity? Energy equity means that the farmer in rural Uganda doesn’t have to worry about reduced harvest yields, food spoilage, or a loss in revenues. It means residents of nearby villages don’t have to walk long distances to process their maize or worry about the uncertainties of climate change on their food supply.
