The agriculture and agri-food sector continue to be in crisis mode due to the dependence on increasingly costly fuel-based energy and transportation. This affects all food system processes across food production, transformation, and transportation.
We are looking for SMEs and Cooperatives that can address this challenge through initiatives to improve the access of agribusiness SMEs and farmers to sustainable energy sources or through more efficient and sustainable use of energy sources. For example integrated solutions, biodiesel, by-product energy generation, solar-powered water-saving irrigation, etc.
Applicants solely requesting the installation of Solar PV solutions or similar with no demonstration of impact beyond the business itself will not be considered.
