Energy efficiency

web_fuel_efficiency_1PRACTICA has ample experience in innovative research on renewable energy. On the short-term however, improving the efficiency of conventional technologies can result in a major reduction of fossil fuel consumption as well. This not only results in a significant benefit for the environment due to the reduction of emission of carbon dioxide; it also translates into huge financial gains for the smallholder producer.

Energy efficiency projects are mainly related to small scale irrigation or other small scale productive use and includes the optimization of 5hp diesel engines and selection, testing and promotion of fuel-efficient small petrol engine pumpsets.
