Smart about power

Solving the most critical and shifting challenges in decentralised energy access requires us to be active in the village, in the boardroom, on the podium and in multiple branches and levels of the government.

We bring together knowledge, strategies, resources, partners, businesses and communities. We advocate for change at all levels, deliver innovative end-user financing and community development solutions, help attract investors and support mini-grid developers, and design and produce vital, open-source research to inform decision-making.

Why decentralised energy?

Electrification is a driving factor in reducing poverty and promoting economic development. While Myanmar’s National Electrification Plan aims to provide nationwide electricity access by 2030 through grid extension, decentralised renewable energy solutions can be deployed to complement the grid extension by providing solutions in areas that would otherwise be difficult and costly to connect. These renewable solutions not only transform rural communities, but also increase resilience and environmental sustainability of remote areas.

Our Impact

Our goals are ambitious. Over the next several years with our wide array of partners, we expect to:

Influence and support policy and regulatory changes that will underpin confident investment in Myanmar.

Facilitate over $100 million of investment to scale energy access efforts that will transform the lives of millions.

See incomes increase at least three-fold in communities with reliable access to decentralised energy.

Improve the livelihoods and economic prospects of over 10 million people through energy access and productive uses of electricity.
