Powering Agriculture releases new reader about sustainable energy solutions in agriculture from its Sustainable Energy for Food MOOC held in 2016.
EarthSpark graduation! GIZ hosts partners meeting. Motivo Engineering's progress. Promethean Power in new partnership. iDE, KickStart International, & SunDanzer at VentureWell Open. Futurepump & SunCulture shortlisted for Ashden Awards. 5 Powering Ag Innovators on Companies to Inspire Africa list.
This paper presents three major interconnected problems inhibiting the spread of irrigation in Asia and Africa: lack of access to water, lack of access to energy, and lack of access to finance.
This informative workshop will highlight the latest innovations in renewable, on- and off-grid cold chain storage solutions. Topics will include innovations in point of production cold chain technology and strategies for dissemination and financing of solar cold chain solutions for East Africa.
Powering Ag's Annual Report. Breakthrough Energy Ventures fund announced. VIA finalist for Fire Awards. Samir Ibrahim on Forbes 30 under 30 list. Futurepump and SunCulture on Ashden Awards long list. Promethean Power in The Better India. Motivo began field testing. Futurepump in FarmBiz Africa.
Congratulations to Rebound Technologies on their recently announced 2017 project with Lineage Logistics, the second largest cold storage company in the US. The project will focus on economically optimizing IcePoint™ for industrial use and pave the way for future cold storage warehouse deployments.
Here's another milestone for Rebound Technologies: Southern California Edison's Thermal Test Center has begun third party validation testing of an IcePoint™ demonstration unit! This testing allows Rebound the opportunity to evaluate IcePoint™ cooling performance in various climate conditions.
Congratulations to Powering Agriculture graduate Rebound Technologies! Their off-grid refrigeration system, SunChill™, has passed its field tests, confirming its viability. Having completed the technology foundation of the project, they're now ready to begin the necessary industrial design work.
Powering Agriculture ‘Graduates’ First Innovators: Earth Institute at Columbia University, Rebound Technologies; Midterm Evaluations Published; Stories from the Field: ICU, UVG, SunCulture; Promethean Power Systems and Futurepump Reach Production Milestones; Innovators In the News; Upcoming Events.
Earth Institute is now a Powering Agriculture graduate! Now that they've successfully installed three shared solar PV pumping systems that have had a huge impact on the production and efficiency of 21 farms, they're seeking partnerships for scaling up, adoption and local maintenance contracts.
Powering Agriculture & Innovators Sundanzer, Husk Power Systems, Futurepump and SunCulture are featured in a brief issued by SEED discussing ways in which policymakers catalyze development of the energy/agriculture nexus in East Africa.
