Solar Milk Cooling in Bangladesh: Off-grid clean energy solutions for rural milk collection centres

PRAN, one of Bangladesh' largest food processing companies, has in recent years set up a network of dairy hubs and village milk collection centres to help them source milk from small farmers and to provide those farmers with a steady source of income. The network has been highly successful; however, chilling the milk while it waits for collection is expensive and carbon-intensive, as power cuts average over 6 hours a day and diesel generators need to be used as back-up for the chillers. REEEP supported Enerplus, a small international consultancy company, to set up a pilot project with PRAN to equip the milk collection centres with clean energy technology. The results of this pilot, and the plans for a scale-up covering PRAN's entire dairy hub network, can be found in this brochure.

REEEP-funded roadmap promotes RE in buildings in Changjiang River region

A newly released roadmap document outlines a strategy for integrating renewable energy technologies into buildings in China’s Changjiang River (CJR) basin.  The region covers an area of 1.8 million km² with a population of over 500 million. It includes China's major industrial centres and generates 40% of the country's GDP. The region is also growing quickly, with 500 million m2 of new construction added each year.
