Why Alternative Energy?

Over 1.4 billion people in the world live in energy poverty. This means that they have no access to electricity, or their energy source is unsafe and unreliable. Consequently, millions of mobile phone users cannot keep their phones charged. For these reasons, we seek to invest in storage, management, and harvesting solutions that are a safe and sustainable alternative to the grid or kerosene. Micro energy systems provide energy at the human, household, and small village scale to populations beyond the reach of reliable grid energy or safe alternatives.
