AE's mission is to reduce energy poverty in marginalised communities through renewable energy.

1 billion people around the world are experiencing acute energy poverty.

Hundreds of millions more are dependent on diesel-fuelled generation, which exposes low-income communities in Oceania, Africa, the Asia-Pacific, South and Central America and the Caribbean to the volatility of global oil markets.

While governments, donors, communities and investors have long been aware of these challenges, there remain major barriers standing in the way of responsible clean-energy investment where it is most needed.

We proactively work with communities, donors, investors and solutions providers to originate viable projects, facilitate investment, and create partnerships able to develop and run renewable energy projects that serve local needs.

We’re building a novel partnership facilitation mechanism that lowers transaction costs for all actors and expedites clean energy investment into marginalised communities.
