Low carbon emission agriculture equipment

Challenge Background

Energy can be applied to agriculture in all phase of the production: farm machinery, water management, irrigation, cultivation and harvesting. Despite these needs in Africa energy use for agriculture in negligeable compared to the rest of the world even though most of the arable lands are found in Africa leading to low food production and food insecurities. Mechanizing soil preparation and harvesting can increase the production land for small scale farmers, improve harvesting procedures. Because of high cost of mechanization and high fuel cost small scale farmers cannot afford to purchase individually the equipment needed to improve soil preparation, harvesting equipment, preprocessing of harvests etc.

What we are looking for

We are looking for Zero to low carbon emission mechanized solution for agricultural equipment as tradition mechanized agriculture equipment run on diesel and generates high level of carbon. There is a crucial need to retrofit current equipment to make it electric and powered through solar energy or hydrogen fuel. Such equipment could allow for a shared usage among farmers and greatly improve soil preparation, harvesting of crops.

Solution criteria

Easy to use
Can work in remote areas
Electric (charged by solar energy or hydrogen)
Location service works without internet connection
Robust collection of data for food security
Low cost to small scale farmers (can be subsidized by government and NGO’s)

What we offer

We have an experienced technical and management team, great knowledge of the field, great connections in the water and energy ecosystem of Burkina Faso.
