This paper reviews the evidence available on the provision of financing for African smallholder farmers to purchase irrigation equipment such as pumps, pipes and drip irrigation systems. It sets the scene by first reviewing the literature on experiences with providing microcredit and other microfinance services as a poverty reduction strategy.

This report takes stock of the experiences with solar powered irrigation systems (SPIS) around the world. What are the real costs and benefits of SPIS compared with other technologies? What rules, regulations and policies are needed to manage the risks and realize the potential of such systems? What are viable business models?

This brief prepared for COP24, the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), highlights the sharply falling costs of solar, wind and other renewable power-generation options, along with the growing viability of energy storage technologies.

In the Africa and Asia markets, the number of solar mini-grid projects is expected to grow from 2,700 units in 2017 to over 31,000 units by 2023, with 51% of these figures to come from Africa.

For the second time this year, Germany has awarded all available capacity from its latest mixed wind and solar renewable energy auction to large-scale solar projects, awarding a total combined capa

CHENNAI: A 5kW solar panel atop Chennai Corporation Middle School at Basin Bridge has started functioning.

In what could be seen as another blow to the country’s plan to increase the share of renewables-based power in its energy basket, solar and wind power developers have once again displayed a muted r

Nagpur: Solar Industries, the private sector defence manufacturer from the city, is planning to enter into a joint venture with South Africa’s Fucshs Electronics to make electronic fuses for artill

Growing shares of solar and wind power call for increasingly flexible grid operation. This report from the International Renewable Energy Agency (IRENA) outlines a planning approach to boost flexibility, specifically to accommodate the largest possible shares of variable renewable (solar and wind) energy sources.
