Food hubs are a crucial, but often invisible, part of the local food system. They help small farms grow by offering a combination of production, distribution, and marketing services. There are now 236 food hubs in the U.S., with more popping up all the time. Click here for the USDA resources page for Food Hubs.
Micro-grids / Distributed Energy
Hybrid electricity solutions combining the best of both worlds: grid energy with local biomass, solar and battery energy produced from the communities' value added resources. Community energy means money that is generated by the community and that pays for community assets.
Do you want to know how these solutions can be adapted to your project?
Sunergie has identified pathways to increase the value of biomass energy produced by a project's land. Various sizes of bioenergy to electric, thermal energy and biochar technologies are now commercially available, and which can be readily integrated into distributed energy micro-grids.
