In conjunction with the renewable energy sector, David is also involved with CommunitiGro123 Initiative in Africa. Communitigro is a model for new sustainable cities across Africa.

DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR

David Fortune

A branded Social Entrepreneur, Ashoka Fellow, www.ashoka.org, David cut his teeth at Solarus Sunpower, focused on hospitality, and has developed a vision for bringing sustainability to Africa.

Having started the now defunct company, Future Power IPP, more than 10 years ago to develop large scale wind and solar farms, 4 years ago David was introduced to the Solarus PV-T technology. He has since been convinced that solar thermal has the potential to provide a huge portion of the world’s heat needs, bearing in mind that heat makes up more than 50% of the energy demand globally.

David believes that in combination with heat pumps as back-up and with smart monitoring systems, solar thermal can reduce the cost of bulk water heating by up to 50%. Green Line Africa seeks to work for the benefit of people, profit and planet, with a focus on the African continent.
