Can Renewable Energy sustain the New global economy?
In contrast to traditional energy, alternative energy is dependent on local conditions and the optimal solution for one locale can vary dramatically from another. GIVE provides complete, viable solutions tailored to local resources and needs. It does so by partnering with companies that specialize and excel in each link of the supply chain. As the team leader and integrator, GIVE knows that the chain is only as strong as its weakest link and is constantly vigilant to test and verify the strength and compatibility of each link and sequence. Towards that end, GIVE is constantly expanding its network of land and farm management acquisitions & leasings, technology providers, EPC companies and financing institutions, all with the backing of experts that specialize in renewable energy generation and sustainability.
