Unlocking capital for change
Energy is Africa's great challenge. Over 500 million Africans live without access to the electricity grid and rely on dangerous, dirty energy sources like kerosene. With the continent’s population predicted to double by 2050, there is an urgent need to increase clean energy usage. ENGIE Energy Access is tackling this growing challenge with grand-scale innovation. It can go further with access to direct, low-cost financing such as this Crowdfund for Solar platform, which unlocks capital from the global cryptocurrency market.
