Reaching last mile markets with decentralised renewable energy 
Did you know that globally over 1.1 billion people still lack access to electricity? They are forced to rely on polluting and inconvenient kerosene lamps and batteries to light their houses. Others travel for miles to reach neighbours with access to electricity. In addition, lack of access to energy delays economic development. Decentralised renewable energy not only provides reliable power to people living in rural areas, or those trying to make a living in fragile contexts such as refugee camps, it also helps to fuel the economy and fight climate change. Do we need more reasons to want sustainable energy for all (SDG7) by 2030? Let's talk Energy!
