Fact sheet // Decentralized Renewables: Boosting Agriculture and Improving Nutrition

This fact sheet shows up ways, solutions and examples how decentralized use of renewable energy sources can enhance food security.

category Fact Sheets tag Food and Agriculture tag SPIS (Solar-powered-Irrigation)

One in 9 people—795 million people—are undernourished, 98 percent of whom live in emerging economies. UN SDG 2 targets the end of hunger and all forms of malnutrition by 2030, as well as the doubling of agricultural productivity and incomes of small-scale food producers. Decentralized renewable energy (DRE) solutions can aid subsistence and low-income farmers to increase outputs, create savings, and allow for increased income for spending on more nutritious food.

Key messages

  • The role of decentralized renewables in improving irrigation, cold storage, and agricultural yields will be imperative to reach UN SDG 2 targets for hunger eradication, especially as climate change is projected to increase droughts and extreme weather. Join Power for All to share the following messages:
  • Decentralized renewables, especially solar irrigation and water pumps can increase agricultural outputs, as well as increase diversity of crop production.
  • Decentralized renewables can power cold storage systems, drastically reducing food waste and preserving more food for people to eat.
  • Mechanized agro processing powered by distributed renewables can save labor and increase the value of crops.
