Beyond Coal to Clean Energy: Energy Access
More than 1.3 billion people around the world live in darkness lacking access to even small amounts of life changing electricity. The good news is we can change this by deploying off-grid renewable energy technology that is available today and better suited to meeting the challenge of energy access than centralized coal projects.
We need disruptive solutions like solar crowdfunding to transform the broken systems that promote outdated fossil fuel technology that has proven incapable of providing energy access to the worldâ€™s poor. Crowdfunding works by aggregating small amounts of funding through online portals like the one maintained by SunFunder, SolarMosaic, or Milaap. These platforms aggregate small 'crowdsourced' amounts of funding into larger sums that directly finance clean energy entrepreneurs. All told, it's a $90 billion clean energy access opportunity that can help transform peopleâ€™s lives and the fate of our planet.
