Energy Access Foundation - advancing innovation and entrepreneurship in rural energy

Energy Access Foundation is a non-profit organization that increases access to clean and renewable energy for unserved populations in emerging markets through rural energy enterprises to alleviate poverty, expand economic development, and protect the environment.

EAF catalyzes affordable service to underserved communities in developing countries by supporting the expansion of rural energy delivery capacity and engaging in-country microfinance capability. EAF views small and medium enterprises as vital partners and the best means of accelerating rural energy services and creating replicable models for service to remote or disadvantaged communities without access to modern energy sources.

We seek to achieve our mission through collaborations with:
• Rural energy industry clusters, such as the REDCO Alliance
• Microfinance networks and support organizations, such as ACCION International and Women’s World Banking
• Clean energy support organizations, such as Winrock International
