You will often get the best information on the use and conservation of energy from people and organisations working in your specific field of interest, such as in the manufacture of organic fertiliser, vegetable canning or refrigerated transport. More general information on the generation of power for agricultural and rural applications is available from two superbly located organisations, which are highly active in global networks of rural power practitioners. DESI Power is an Indian organisation which sets up joint ventures with villages and local entrepreneurs as independent rural power producers to operate small powerplants of 100 to 500 Kw capacity using local renewable resources. The plants generate electricity by gasification of non-forestry biomass; the producer gas is fed into normal diesel generators. DESI Power also has experience in the use of solar, wind, minihydro, steam and other technologies for decentralised power production, and in their use in rural processing activities. DESI Power c/o Development Alternatives, B-32 Tara Crescent, Qutab Institutional Area, New Delhi, India 110016. Fax: +91 11 686 6031 - Email: firstname.lastname@example.org IT Power, drawn from the intermediate technology philosophy, has worked in 90 countries on 500 renewable energy projects over two decades. It has extensive experience in solar photovoltaics, microhydro power and wind turbines. IT Power, The Warren, Bramshill Road, Eversley, Hampshire RG27 0PR, England. - Fax: +44 118 973 0820 - Email: email@example.com A broader network of practitioners is INFORSE, the Information Network for Sustainable Energy. It has skills in rural applications, with a special emphasis on renewable energy in small islands. Its secretariat is hosted by the Danish Forum for Energy and Development. INFORSE, Blegdamsvej 4 B 1, DK- 2200 Copenhagen N, Denmark.

As well as working on energy for the urban poor, energy sector reform and climate change, it is specialised in renewables, focussing on innovative mechanisms and best practices (economic, infrastructural and social) for the delivery of rural energy services.
