The GIZ team of the Project Development Programme (PEP) was received by Peter Schrum, founder and shareholder of SUNfarming, as well as David Morr, Head of the Research and Development Department and other SUNfarming staff.
The GIZ team works on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Protection (BMWK) within the framework of the Energy Export Initiative with the aim of disseminating climate-friendly energy solutions and supporting market access for German and European small and medium-sized enterprises in selected cooperation countries in sub-Saharan Africa, the Middle East and Asia. This also strengthens economic development in the partner countries and contributes to international climate protection. In addition to classic rooftop PV systems, there is growing interest in these countries for the dual use of agriculture and energy transition through agri-PV systems.
