Biomass power for the poor in India

Husk Power System, a company in India, has developed mini biomass power generators that now provide power to those who never had electricity. The power is generated from agricultural waste

After five months of R&D, they developed a system that could produce 32 kilowatts of power by burning 50 kilograms of rice husk per hour. In the last four years, they’ve installed over 80 biomass mini-plants across Bihar, bringing power to more than 32,000 rural households.
