FEED President Peter Schrum and Vice President Edith Brasche visited FEED projects in the Potchefstroom region in November and met other new partners to expand sustainable development aid in the Potchefstroom region and beyond.For more information, visit FEED.
The courses offered are controlled by the responsible South African authority SAQA (South African Qualification Authority). The certificates awarded at the end of a small handover ceremony represent a nationally recognized qualification that facilitates entry into the labor market.
More than 40 schools, 10,000 children and 50,000 relatives will take part in this sustainable project aimed at helping people to help themselves. 28.8 million servings of high quality, healthy Vitality Porridge developed by SUNfarming will be delivered and distributed over a period of 18 months.
„Have a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. Let us all come back together in 2022 and keep on changing people´s lives.“ wishes Melanie Jooste, Team Leader SUNfarming South Africa.
The whole SUNfarming team agrees with this wish.

We would like to talk to you about the following topics:
SUNfarming as project-developer and invest-controller for capital investors and banks
We have already successfully realized projects for more than 500 MW of capacity, 115 MW as own PV investments.
280 MW in service and maintenance
7% more yield on all SUNfarming plants (average yield compared to yield reports audited by ING.-Büro JERA)
SUNfarming solar energy for municipalities and commercials
0 % investment costs
10 % electricity cost savings (minimum) in the first 10 years (SF own electricity concept)
100 % CO2 savings
SUNfarming Food & Energy Projects
Based on our own development, the unique SUNfarming agro-solar greenhouses deliver education + jobs + food production + energy security where they are currently needed.
Last year we won the Intersolar Award in the category Outstanding Solar Projects with our unique project "SUNfarming Food & Energy Training Project".
This year, Food & Energy was vote as one of the TOP3 finalists for the GreenTec Award 2018 by an independent jury. Experience our project live!
We present project from Turkey, Poland and Africa
SUNfarming Solar-Training-Centres in Peru and South Africa
More than 1000Trainees until 2017 in South Africa, 40 trainees in Peru since project start in 2015
Our commitment does not end with support.
We speak your language: German, English, Turkish, Spanish
We are looking forward to your visit.
Your SUNfarming Team
More than 11 million kilowatt hours of electricity are produced by the two solar parks with a total capacity of 6.64 megawatts a year. The Co2 savings are around 8,300 tonnes annually.
3,358 kWp were completed in the Aegean province of Denizli and 3,279 kWp in the Anatolian province of Kayseri. The major projects were implemented by SUNfarming Eurasia. Commissioning took place in December 2017.
Denizli has about 1 million inhabitants. The province is located about 200 km from the Turkish Aegean coast and is known for its healing waters and thermal baths. The economy of the region consists mainly of the textile industry and winegrowing. The project was developed by the SUNfarming Eurasia team, the property with 69.100m2 is the property of SUNfarming Eurasia.
Kayseri is located about 280 km south-east of the capital Ankara and has about 1.2 million inhabitants.
Develi, a suburb of Kayseri, has about 60,000 inhabitants and lies behind the Erciyes Mountains. The land was leased to 30 years, with a 10-year extension option.
With solar radiation of around 1,600 kWh / kWp in Kayseri and 1,660 kWh / kWp in Denizli, both regions offer the best solar yield for the production of renewable energy and make a global contribution to climate protection.
This year, SUNfarming presented itself as a partner, together with the German Federal Ministry for Economic Development (BMZ), to the 400,000 trade fair visitors.
The general interest in SUNfarming as a project developer for capital investors as well as in the realization and active support of PV projects for commercial and private power plants was as always great. This year, we were able to successfully present our unique "Food & Energy" concept, a combination of solar energy production and food production. With the
experience of more than 1,000 hectares of solar projects implemented worldwide, SUNfarming developed the unique Food & Energy concept. In addition to the benefits of solar energy, the key elements are food production, job creation, training and water management. The SUNfarming "5 in 1" model contributes actively to the sustainable improvement of people's living conditions, particularly in resource-poor areas or refugee regions.

Federal Development Minister Gerd Müller, has put more support in the refugee policy for the countries of origin and was very interested in finding out more about our Food & Energy concept.
Hans-Joachim Fuchtel, Parliamentary State Secretary at the Federal Ministry of the Interior, showed also great interest in cooperation in the area of Food & Energy as an approach to combating the causes of flight. There will also be concrete discussions on projects in the solar PV sector in developing and emerging countries.
The Minister of the Environment of Qatar and the Agricultural Minister of Mauritius took the opportunity to get information about possibilities of cooperating with our competent project leaders.
Madagascar's Embassy Adviser, the Ambassador of Guatemala and the Bolivian Ambassador, as well as a delegation from the Nigerian Embassy, were also interested guests.
Representing the Embassy of Paraguay, Mr Maidana, responsible for Economic Affairs, visited us and the embassy council of the Republic of El Salvador also got to know our stand.
The already implemented Food & Energy project in South Africa was presented by SUNfarming at the public event "A world without hunger is possible", a special initiative of the BMZ.
At the head of a business delegation, Brandenburg's Minister of Economic Affairs Albrecht Gerber and the Managing Director of ZAB ZukunftsAgentur Brandenburg, Sebastian Saule, visited Lima (Peru). Other members of the delegation included Meike Stockbrügger, external economist at the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Energy Brandenburg and Jörg Ranau, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Peru / Lima.
A special focus here was on Gerber's expansion of renewable energies. Innovative technologies and commitment are necessary to stop climate change. Brandenburg companies like SUNfarming, can contribute their decades of experience and expertise in the field of renewable energies.
Already since 2015, SUNfarming, together with the Peruvian training organization SENATI and the GIZ (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit GmbH), has been running a PV training facility on behalf of the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development The SENATI site in Lima, Peru. 80 Electrical engineers have been successfully trained at the Solar Training Center.
A further meeting of the economic delegation took place with Peruvian representatives of the SUNfarming subsidiary together with the Peruvian Agriculture Minister Jose Manuel Hernandez. The most important topic here was the latest SUNfarming project "Food & Energy".
Based on our own developments, SUNfarming has developed a unique agro-solar substructure for greenhouses. The roof is partially covered with solar modules for energy production. This unique combination ensures effective food production and a sustainable energy supply through PV. The benefits for citizens and municipalities are endless. The project offers a broad participation of municipalities with long-term property, sustainable food and energy production and job security with a strong training component.
1. Green energy production
2. Food production
5. Water management
SUNfarming Food & Energy offers the unique possibility of double surface use. In addition to solar energy production, food is being grown under the modules to supply the local population.
Minister Jose Manuel Hernandez and delegation delegates from Brandenburg also showed great interest in this second project, which was developed by SUNfarming. Further discussions are planned on a possible cooperation.
