The high potential of renewable energy technologies and related energy
services for productive use of smallholder farmers and rural enterprises
remains still widely unused. A major cause for this situation is the lack of
sustainable and scalable business cases through which economically and
socially viable solutions are demonstrated, and which serve as an example for
propagating them on large scale.

Through a multi-country initiative that started in January 2021, with funding
secured for 3 years, the project will support scalable, innovative business
cases using renewable energy services and technologies for irrigation, cooling
and drying to improve production and livelihoods of smallholder farmers in the
dairy and horticultural value chains in Ethiopia, Kenya and Uganda. In Uganda,
the project will be implemented in the Southwestern Districts of Isingiro,
Kazo, Kiruhura, Lyantonde, Ntungamo and Kamwenge.
