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.

Today, Promethean Power Systems celebrates the shipment of their 100th milk chiller, coupled with their innovative thermal battery technology.

The milk chiller is on its way to India’s largest private dairy, Hatsun Agro. Hatsun Agro is now able to run their chillers without the need of diesel generators for the first time in their history.

Sam White, co-founder and director at Promethean, says they would not have been able to reach this milestone without the support of incubator programs like Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development and USAID’s Global Development Lab.

Sorin Grama, co-founder and director at Promethean, reflects upon Promethean’s association with Hatsun Agro with Hatsun’s Chairman, R.G. Chandramogan. “Who would’ve thought this would happen when we first met you in 2009? We’ve made some great strides since then thanks to your patronage and support. These milk chillers are more than a novel technology for the dairy industry, they are a symbol of economic development in villages.”
