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.
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.
