Problem: Many communities, especially in remote or underserved areas, are disconnected from the broader energy grid and struggle to efficiently manage waste, missing the opportunity to convert waste to energy.

Solution: Our concept revolves around a digital platform that bridges the gap between communities with waste management challenges and tech-savvy environmental enthusiasts. The platform facilitates the establishment of community-driven microgrids that convert waste to energy using simple, low-cost technology readily available in the market. By encouraging local participation and sharing knowledge resources, the platform empowers communities to adopt renewable energy practices.
