Grantees

Swayam Shikshan Prayog

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has partnered with Swayam Shikshan Prayog (SSP) through the SAREP Partnership Fund (SPF). This project aims to utilize SPF to leverage its extensive network of rural women entrepreneurs, driving the adoption of cost-effective and energy-efficient innovations, as well as livestock waste-to-energy solutions. With the support fromthe grant, the project will implement storage systems that do not require external energy and install prefabricated bio-digester solutions. These bio-digesters will convert livestock waste into energy and produce bio-gas slurry, a highly effective natural fertilizer for small-scale farmers. The anticipated direct impacts of this project, funded by the grant, include reducing wastage of harvested produce, lowering energy costs, and increasing the income of small-scale farmers and rural women micro-entrepreneurs.

AutoGrid Systems Inc.

The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) has partnered with AutoGrid System under the SAREP Partnership Fund (SPF). Through the grant, the project proposes a large- scale Behavioral Demand Response (BDR) program in collaboration with a leading power distribution company in Delhi-NCR to reduce peak electricity consumption. The initiative will support the implementation of a system where consumers receive signals via text messages or emails to optimize their electricity load. Consumers are incentivized for reducing their usage during peak times. With thermal power as a major energy source, these collective efforts will significantly cut the city's power consumption and carbon footprint, while also lowering consumers' power bills.
