2016 was a successful year for clean energy. How will 2017 shape up?
100% urban electrification doesn’t necessarily deliver 24/7 power in some developing countries.
New technologies such as lithium-ion batteries, LED lights and rooftop solar power are changing the way electricity is generated and supplied. We also need less electricity; with energy-efficient lighting and appliances, our electricity needs are reducing every year.
India is pushing hard for wider use of electric vehicles, but many challenges remain. One of them is a lack of charging infrastructure.
The next 12 months are likely to bring us closer to a new era of renewable energy, much faster than I predicted a year ago.
We learn the story of a Kyrgyz small business that could benefit tremendously from off-grid electricity.
We need to start adopting the electric car en masse at the bottom of the income pyramid in the region if we want to achieve real transformation in the clean energy sector.
A simple device can bring off-grid electricity to millions of homes in developing Asia.
Our comprehensive electricity solution packages in 3 disruptive energy technologies: solar power, super efficient appliances, and lithium-ion batteries.
33 years from now, energy will be affordable, renewable, and equitable as demand declines and technology becomes available to everyone.
