Shine brings together innovative investors and grantmakers/donors at foundations, NGOs and faith-based groups to bring decentralized, locally owned and led renewable energy development to the world’s most vulnerable people in the hardest to reach places.


Through grants and investment facilities and by championing the cause, Shine’s values-driven community of partners are helping to light the way for a global energy transition to sustainable, scalable and just clean energy solutions.

Shine offers regular convenings and promotes strategic dialogue among partners, organizes re-granting and investment facilities, and champions the cause through a range of communications channels.
