About Powering Agriculture

Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development supports the development and deployment of clean energy innovations that increase agriculture productivity and stimulate low carbon economic growth in the agriculture sector of developing countries to help end extreme poverty and extreme hunger.

Rebound recently completed testing an IcePoint™ demonstration unit at a Whole Foods near Denver, Colorado. Installed last Fall, the commercial prototype successfully provided 46,400 BTUs of low temperature refrigeration over the testing period while helping the Rebound team identify design and control revisions required for future systems.
