Some appealing concepts for fostering rural development imply the systematic exploitation of locally available renewable sources of energy. In this perspective, Integrated Energy Farms, or Integrated Energy Settlements, can be thought of as sustainable power centres, supplying local markets comfortably with electricity and fuels, while at the same time covering their demand for food crops and soft commodities.
As different ecological, and socio-cultural settings may require specific types of design for locally adapted Integrated Energy Farms, AfriSolar intends to devise basic features for a couple of such types, and translate them into a set of screen-play scripts, in the style of this recent film illustrating a solar oasis, featured by their partner IFEED.
