Over 900 million (13% of the world) do not have access to what many of us take for granted - electricity. Three billion (40% of the world) do not have access to clean fuels for cooking! By focusing on accelerating the efforts of social entrepreneurs and small business’ in emerging economies, our goal is to scale clean energy innovations like solar home systems and microgrids to ensure that these economies leapfrog fossil fuels altogether.
