Renewable energy and farming are a winning combination—wind, solar, and biomass energy can be harvested, providing farmers with a long-term source of income. According to the report, over 44 million rural households use biogas made in household digesters, and more than 166 million households now rely on a new generation of more-efficient biomass stoves, which can be better for the environment and more cost-effective than fossil fuel-based energy sources, such as oil.
