Investing in Renewable energyThere is a large market for renewable energy on the earth. Continent like Africa has large reserves of untapped renewable energy. There are many opportunities for exploring and implementing renewable energy solutions.
You can make bio fuel from the cash crop of Jatropha that has the capacity to produce electricity. Planting the cash crop in villages and installing renewable energy off grid power farms and distributing the power to the village and supplementing it with solar home systems is one way of using renewable source of energy.
There are many companies that make equipment that will help to make power from Jatropha to the rural community. The equipment like stoves and lanterns are made and given to village people at subsidized rate so that they are encouraged to grow jatropha
This plant is a suitable plant to be gown and does not harm the ecological system. It is a suitable means for forestation and for restoring of soil quality. The farms growing jatropha will have facilities in nearby areas to process the seeds for extraction into bio-fuel. The diesel made from the bio-fuel can be made to run generators, fuel vehicles, etc.
The renewable sources of energy are fine examples of how to use the existing infrastructure to make energy. The bio fuel lanterns, generators and stove will change the lives of people who have been using charcoal, firewood, electricity and gas for their energy needs. It is a better, cheaper, environmentally friendly and health advanced system for having energy. Jatropha as a cash bio fuel crop will increase people's purchasing power.
With constant supply of bio-fuel there will be different development projects and established cottage industries to make the best of the day to day used products. There will be more and more employment in generating this type of energy so that you can produce bio- fuel.
