Partner Spotlight: Pollinate Energy
Bringing Affordable, Green Energy to Impoverished Communities in India
Pollinate Energy, an Australian start-up, was started five years ago by a team of young Australians who realised that families living in tents were burning toxic, dangerous and expensive kerosene. The social business based in Australia and India has a mission of bringing life-changing products to people who need them the most – families living in marginalised communities and struggling with energy poverty. An estimated 700 million people in India still rely on solid fuels and traditional cookstoves for domestic cooking and a vast majority of them rely on kerosene for indoor lighting.
Power for All is a global coalition of more than 200 organizations (business and finance, civil society, academic and public sector) campaigning to deliver universal electricity access before 2025 through the power of decentralized, renewable energy (DRE). More than 1 billion people lack access to reliable electricity, a majority of whom live in rural and remote areas. The businesses and public services that support these people also lack power, hindering socio-economic development. Connecting all these communities to the grid will take too long and cost too much. Power for All is working on this challenge in three ways.
