Why We Love Them: Empower Generation connects renewable energy technology (RET) suppliers with female entrepreneurs living on less than $2.50 per day to supply clean energy to 1.6 billion people.
Mission: Empower Generation provides women with the technical training and support to start their business, and offer BoP (base of the economic pyramid) energy-consumers microfinancing for RET purchases. Supplying clean energy to the people living without access to electricity is one of the largest opportunities of our time, and women are the key to unlocking potential. Already acting as household energy managers and disproportionally undervalued in their communities, Empower Generation’s entrepreneurs are empowered to become the leaders of the clean-energy revolution.
