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.

Blog by Martin Hiller: Frontier Markets and the Triple Efficiency Imperative

One strength of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development is that it comes with a tight deadline. We are used to talking about climate change over long timescales, speaking of impacts expected and actions needed by 2050 or beyond, which reduces the impetus for immediate action. The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) force us to focus on what can and needs to be done now, leaving us just 13 years to increase human wellbeing across the planet while at the same time safeguarding the environment and combatting climate change.
