Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development Powering Agriculture Innovators 2015 wwwPoweringAg

org I’m Manoj Sinha, from Husk Power Systems I’m co-founder and CEO of the company My name is Adedotun Eyinade, you can call me Ade for short I work as the director of business development in Africa for Husk Power Systems We design biomass gasification systems and solar pv systems that power minigrids to provide clean, affordable electricity to rural communities

We installed 70 minigrids in India and Tanzania that lighted over 20,000 households We have been saving our customers about half a million dollars on an annual basis as the switch from kerosene or diesel-based electrification to SBS minigrid Power can be used to run pretty much any appliances, residential and also for production uses Having served so many customers for so many years, what we realized is our customers really wanted on demand power We partnered with First Solar, the largest solar panel manufacturer in the US to co-design a system which we call a hybrid system between biomass system and solar system, and have eliminated the need of battery uses

This allows us to provide on-demand power as of today to 400 customers in India as we speak And with Powering Agriculture fund we are launching ourselves in west Africa as well We hope that with the fund that we are getting we will be able to demonstrate the financial viability and hopefully be able to catalyze our growth and get more commercial-type funding to scale it up Thank you, and hope to see you and speak to you again, thanks Powering Agriculture: An Energy Grand Challenge for Development www
