National Energy Globe Award - Somalia
When areas are wrought with desertification, it is almost impossible to establish a productive food source. This year’s National Winner of the Energy Globe Award in Somalia built a greenhouse using seawater and solar power to cool it down enough and humidify it to create a perfect growing environment. The process is suited to off grid application, making use of the vast tracts of unused coastal regions, especially where desertification, salinization and over-abstraction of ground water prevent the cultivation of crops. Congratulations to this great initiative!
