About us

Husk is the leading rural energy services company in weak-grid and off-grid communities in Africa and Asia. We provide reliable, quality, 100% renewable power to businesses, households and institutions.

What we do

People living in rural parts of India and Africa face a set of common challenges: lack of access to essential services like water, healthcare, education and income-generating opportunities. The availability of affordable 24/7 power is a prerequisite to address all these issues and more.

Our grid-compatible 100% "theft proof" power generation and transmission lines meet global standards and can be rolled out rapidly and cost effectively to help meet national electrification goals.

Case studies

Power generation

Hybrid system - Solar PV + Biomass system

We pioneered a hybrid system (Solar PV + Biomass system) that could generate lowest-cost 100% renewable power 24/7 by synchronizing solar and biomass gasification power plants.

Waste monetization

Rice husk char to incense sticks

We developed a proprietary process to convert rice husk char, a waste product of gasification, to "green" incense sticks and employed only women for manufacturing.
