Renewable energy

Currently, over a billion people face the challenge of accessing affordable and reliable energy. In developing economies, energy policies are largely focused on large-scale infrastructure for urban populations, whilst energy poverty is rarely the entry point for policy development. As a result, small-scale supply of energy for the needs of rural and peri-urban homes and small and medium enterprises, has received little attention or support.

The availability of clean and reliable sources of energy is an essential part of economic development and poverty reduction. Leapfrogging energy poverty can be done by offering renewable energy options where there is no access to fossil energy. SNV Renewable Energy strives for sustainable access and use of clean energy for all. Our solutions encourage green jobs and low-carbon growth to improve lives, increase value, and reduce emissions.
