About Village Industrial Power (VIP)
In 1976, after graduating from MIT, Carl Bielenberg hitchhiked through Europe over to Morocco, across the Saharan Desert and around Africa. After 5 months of travelling Carl lost his backpack in Cameroon. He fell in love with the people and the country and decided to stay. For the first two years Carl worked as an inventor for an agricultural technology organization. In 1978 after saving enough money to branch out on his own, Carl founded The Better World Workshop (BWW) in Baffousam, Cameroon. BWW was an atelier that designed and produced what the customers needed from cocoa depodders to bread pans.
Over the next 40 years Carl was involved in developing energy and agricultural technologies for Africa and the United States. From the Bielenberg Ram Press to the introduction of the Treadle Pump, invented by Gunnar Barnes in Bangladesh and adopted by Carl for the Africa market, the one constant was that people lacked the energy source needed to displace human muscle power. Village Industrial Power’s 10kW unit is the product of these many years of learning in the field. It addresses the need for energy and agricultural processing by using the resources available to farmers.
Village Industrial Power’s (VIP) mobile power plant enables rural farmers to increase the value of their crops by up to 10x. Using agricultural waste as fuel, the 10kW engine creates thermal, electrical, and mechanical energy to transform crops into higher value products. VIP’s pilot power plants are currently on the ground in East Africa and will soon be in India.
VIP is privileged to work with its partners to bring on-demand clean energy access to rural farmers.
