Picture a world in which everyone has access to modern clean energy services! At SNV we are committed to ending energy poverty.
Globally, over 1.3 billion people live without access to electricity and almost 3 billion people lack clean cooking facilities. The world’s poor are continuously affected by the low availability of sustainable and reliable energy, with increasing difficulty in remote areas. Modern energy services are crucial to human well-being as well as to countries' economic development.
With the right mix of approaches, solutions and technologies, we work with public and private partners to empower rural and peri-urban communities. By ensuring energy access and facilitating progress in market creation, gender equality, security, health, education and climate change mitigation, our projects have improved the lives of millions of people around the world.
