When a community has access to electricity, it has access to more economic opportunities. New businesses can be established, existing companies can grow and jobs can be created. energy But access alone is not enough to transform economies. We build the capacity of the businesses that use energy to drive productivity. We take into account the social and economic context in which they operate and help them build partnerships, access finance, technology and markets.
We also work with mini-grid developers to stimulate energy demand in newly electrified areas.

We support mini-grid developers by promoting the productive use demand among the businesses they serve.
