    Multifunctional All Terrain Electrical Hybrid Vehicle for developing countries and disaster areas

    GreenTrac is a multifunctional all terrain transport vehicle and light agricultural tractor with 4 x 4 electric hybrid drive. The onboard standard generator is driven by a small diesel engine converted to run on Pure Plant Oil (PPO). It has 8m² flexible PV panels on the roof, charging the battery pack.

    The vehicle combine development and disaster preparedness for roadless areas.

    Besides solving transport tasks, it can serve as power supply for mini grids.

    Visit from PPO driver from the south of Germany

    Yesterday we had a visit from a plant oil driver from the south of Germany, Hans-Jörg Pfau, who with his daughter is going to Volda in Norway - a trip of over 2000km each way. Hans-Jörg is architect and leisure farmer, and works with passive houses. He is very interested in renewable energy and sustainability, and is a member of EUROSOLAR.

    2 years anniversary for our PV system

    On 22nd July our PV system had 2 years anniversary since the commissioning. The aim of the system is to cover our own need for power. The 1st year it produced nearly 8.900kWh and 2nd year nearly 8.600 kWh, which is more than our consumption of approximately 8.000kWh.

    16 years working with Pure Plant Oil technology

    In January 2015, 16 years had passed since we started working with Pure Plant Oil technology. First we learned how to do - and not to do - practicing in Denmark.  Then came many interesting projects in developing countries, where we benefited from our experience in Denmark, but still learning how to do - on the local conditions with the local crops.
    This presentation tells the story from Denmark and show examples from projects in developing countries.
