Power for All
Across the world, renewable energy is creating a distributed, digitized revolution in the way communities produce and consume power. Join Power for All as we talk to the people working on the front lines of bringing electricity to nearly 1 billion mostly rural poor by 2030, the UN deadline for achieving universal energy access. Designed to stimulate discussion through in-depth interviews, informed analysis and powerful stories, the podcast highlights the trends, latest innovations, research, news, events, policies and impacts of distributed energy systems in the Global South, especially sub-Saharan Africa and developing Asia.
Power for All is a coalition of 300+ organizations campaigning to ensure that everyone on the planet has reliable, affordable and modern electricity before 2030. Visit powerforall.org for more.
