The first Agrinergie® greenhouses due to be deployed in the Pacific region, Focola in New Caledonia is the result of an initiative from a local farmer, who wants to work with Akuo Energy with a view to adapting this innovation to their market gardening business. The cyclone-proof nature of these greenhouses offers clear advantages in security of agricultural production in this region, which suffers an average of two cyclones per year. With a strong commitment to responsible agriculture, this farmer also wants to explore

the possibilities of permaculture. This new activity will allow him to create several new jobs. This project also contribute to the energy independence of New Caledonia, which is particularly determined to move to green energy because years of intensive mining operations have threatened fragile ecosystems in these richly biodiverse islands. This project has been developed with Enercal, a local energy company.
