Some information about the projects we are part of:

OptiMG – Optimizing integrated mini grids for water-energy-food
OptiMG is an initiative funded under the LEAP-RE H2020 project (GA n. 963530) which is looking at the creation of synergies among African and European continents with the intention of promoting Sustainable Development Goals and universal energy access. The main objective of OptiMG is to promote the use of decentralized renewable energy solutions for enhancing sustainable development and increasing awareness around Water-Energy-Food Nexus. Moreover, OptiMG wants to bring mini-grid concept to a next level, facilitating demand assessment and mini grid design optimization processes for encouraging the diffusion of WEF based mini grid.

EMERGE – Energy System Modelling for Green Development of Africa
The EMERGE project (GA n. 101118278) seeks to provide African policy makers, academics, investors, and citizens with the tools and knowledge required to increase the production of clean energy and the sustainable use of resources by empowering WEF Nexus initiative. EMERGE will co-design and test a Toolbox by integrating and building upon existing tools, methodologies, and approaches.

HarvRESt – Harnessing the vast potential of RES for sustainable farming
The main objective of HarvRESt (GA n. 101136904) is to improve the existing knowledge on alternatives for farms decarbonisation, maximising synergies
between RES installations and sustainable agricultural practices. This will result in a decision support system able to provide ad-hoc recommendations to
both farmers and policy makers that will enable the consecution of improved production rates on renewable energy, food & feed within agro communities.
