Powering Agriculture Portal

Many farmers and agribusinesses in developing countries lack access to reliable, affordable, and clean energy services. This limits their ability to adopt modern agricultural practices, increase food production, improve efficiency of their operations, and benefit from broad-based, low-carbon economic growth. As the global population steadily increases, substantial agricultural intensification will need to occur - which is intrinsically tied to an increase in energy demand. Along the value chain - from obtaining agri-inputs, planting, irrigation, and harvesting to processing, transportation, and storage - there are opportunities for increased use of clean energy technologies as well as increased energy efficiency to enhance agriculture production and value. Not only is there an identified need for technology development, but also for creative approaches to bring clean energy innovations to commercial scale.
