Farmers urged to embrace clean energy to cut production costs

Farmers in the country have been urged to embrace clean energy to cut production costs and mitigate the effects of climate change as well. Speakers at a stakeholder consultative forum on scaling the Productive Use of Renewable Energy (PURE) in the agriculture sector said clean energy has enormous potential to make farming more sustainable. The meeting co-hosted by Word Resources Institute Africa, Strathmore University, CS Mott Foundation, and Good Energies Foundation also called for increased investments in renewable energy. Wanjira Mathai, the Managing Director for Africa and Global Partnerships at WRI, emphasised that farmers should adopt productive use of energy. “It is about how we leverage energy. How we use energy, no country in the world developed without energy,” Mathai said. https://www.the-star.co.ke/news/realtime/2024-02-17-farmers-urged-to-embrace-clean-energy-to-cut-production-costs/

    This is a good action, it is also going to reduce poverty since it's not cost full as fossil fuels

                      Government subsidies, loans, and financial incentives can play a crucial role in addressing this.

                        This is great, using clean energy can reduce dependence on fossil fuels & increase energy independence in rural areas.
