Energy Sector Focus
Our Clean Energy focus began in 2009 with a specific focus on working with organizations tackling the problem of the 1.5 billion people living off the electrical grid. Energy is one of the most urgent development challenges and appropriate solutions have the potential to create sustainable positive impact for billions.
Around the world, social entrepreneurs are pioneering methods to bring affordable renewable energy to the 1.5 billion people without grid electricity and the 3 billion people cooking with polluting, unhealthy traditional stoves. While they currently serve only a fraction of the existing market, the technologies and business models they are developing have the potential, if successfully scaled and replicated, to serve almost everyone. To help you better understand energy delivery for customers underserved by traditional markets, and the technologies and business models being used to help empower the bottom billions, we have created the Energy Map.
