American firm to fund Solar-powered desalination projects in Kenya

GivePower, a provider of solar-powered desalination technology, will receive US $3 million from American tech company ServiceNow in order to offer its water farm technology to four Kenyan counties.

The names of the four devolved entities are unknown, but GivePower’s solar water company Max launched in Likoni, Kenya, in June 2020.

A cloud computing platform is created by California-based software startup ServiceNow to assist businesses in managing their digital operations.

As part of its environmental, social, and governance (ESG) finance strategy, it has financed GivePower.

“I’m thrilled to announce a new three-year, US $3 million commitment to GivePower, a nonprofit that uses solar and battery storage technologies to deliver essential services to developing regions,” Edua Dickerson, a ServiceNow executive, said.

“We’ve expanded our partnership with GivePower to bring its cutting-edge solar water farm technology to four counties in Kenya in an effort to help provide a sustainable solution to this problem.”

According to the business, this alliance will use mitigation and adaptation strategies to help minimize the disparities brought on by climate change.

According to her, “our investments in Kenya will help the people there maintain their resilience in the face of upcoming climate disasters, like drought.”

More than 35,000 people now have access to clean water thanks to the first solar farm that the nonprofit GivePower erected in Kenya in August 2018. This Solar-powered desalination farm transforms salt water into drinkable water.

This assisted in providing access to clean water for the communities that the Max system was supposed to serve.

To create effective desalination systems, GivePower has teamed up with businesses in the desalination, pump design, solar technology, and battery storage sectors.

GivePower is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization committed to extending the environmental and social benefits of clean, renewable energy around the globe. GivePower uses solar and battery storage technologies to deliver essential services to the developing world. The organization has helped bring clean power and clean water to underserved communities in 24 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America.
