Almost three billion people don’t have clean, safe cooking facilities. Close to one billion people don’t have the electricity that could improve their health, education and opportunities to earn a better living.

People living in poverty are the least likely to have access to energy. And they are more likely to remain poor if they stay unconnected because most economic activity is impossible without adequate, reliable and competitively priced modern energy.

We do not accept that millions of us may not gain access to affordable electricity or clean cooking for at least another generation – if at all.We’re innovating in clean cooking and energy solutions, including solar and water powered electricity.

We’re bringing together communities, energy providers and decision makers to put sustainable, clean energy solutions to work for the people who need them most.
