Energy Poverty

Energy poverty is inequitable, unjustifiable and unsustainable

Sustainable energy is central to providing opportunities for inclusive, equitable and environmentally friendly economic growth, creating new job opportunities and contributing to poverty eradication while moving towards low-carbon and resource-efficient energy models.

Your partner of choice for self-sustaining clean power

Our SHS and Productive Power off-grid rural services model allows even the poorest segments of society to start their own personal journey towards full electrification. Without needed subsidies or hand-outs.

As a service provider, maintenance is baked into to our very DNA ensuring a sustainable future. All we require is sufficient
development capital to reach the economy of numbers to create a viable self-growing sustainable power services company. 


By focussing on Productive Power, we enable local business innovation and create a more vibrant economy for communities and countries, while providing a full range of direct and indirect societal benefits, such that we positively impact 16/17 of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG’s.)

The link between energy and poverty reduction

Widespread energy poverty condemns billions to darkness, to ill health, to missed opportunities for education and prosperity. Development is not possible without energy, and sustainable development is not possible without sustainable energy.

Energy access is increasingly seen as a vital catalyst to wider social and economic development, enabling education, health and sustainable agriculture, and creating jobs. Energy for productive uses is particularly important to enable local business innovation and create a more vibrant economy for communities and countries, while providing societal benefits as well.

Evidence from across the globe shows that increased access to clean, reliable and affordable energy can provide a critical contribution to reducing poverty. Energy access plays the fundamental role as a driver for development, in delivering health, education, food security and economic growth, to name but a few.
