We think that access to safe, clean, affordable energy is a fundamental right.
But to make this happen for the nearly 800 million people who still lack access to electricity, we must dramatically accelerate the flow of resources for decentralized clean energy projects led by women and communities – whose leadership is indispensable.
That’s our mission.
Our community of values-driven investors is accelerating funding and investing for clean, distributed energy solutions led by local energy champions. Our commitment to energy justice means we prioritize solutions led by women, community members and indigenous people in last mile communities.
Together, we’re defending human rights and protecting the environment. We’re powering homes, healthcare clinics and schools, and fueling sustainable livelihoods and economic development that transforms lives.
