GERES, solar greenhouses in India - Ashden Award winner

GERES has worked with local NGOs in Ladakh to design a robust greenhouse that captures and retains the suns heat. It has built 600 greenhouses that enable villagers to grow vegetables throughout the year - even when temperatures drop to -25°C. Greenhouse owners eat eight times more vegetables than before and their incomes have increased by 30 percent. The project is leading to better nutrition and health for over 50,000 people a quarter of the local population.
