Exploring Decentralized Renewable Energy Technologies in Agriculture, Dairy, and Fishery Value Chains in India
IIEC supported GIZ India to explore and document the diverse applications of decentralized renewable energy (DRE) technologies within key stages of the Agriculture, Dairy, and Fishery value chains. The primary objectives involved a comprehensive review of existing literature, reports, and publications to identify suitable DRE technologies applicable to small and marginal farmers.
This includes an in-depth analysis of each application, covering features, classifications, technical specifications, and potential variations. The project further emphasizes a comparative assessment of DRE technologies against conventional fossil fuel-driven alternatives in the market. Additionally, the economic potential and viability of the identified DRE applications were scrutinized, with a focus on case studies that encapsulate the business model and institutional framework. The integration of visual presentations in case studies aims to facilitate future use in E-learning modules. In the context of this endeavor, small and marginal farmers are defined based on specific criteria related to land ownership and livestock quantities in Agriculture, Dairy, and Fishery.
