Who We Are

Power for All is a global coalition of 200 private and public organizations campaigning to deliver universal energy access before 2030 through the power of decentralized, renewable electricity.

2 billion people—almost a third of humanity—are without access to reliable energy, and the majority of them live in rural areas with no established method of energy delivery. Compared to traditional approaches, renewable, distributed energy is less expensive, faster to implement, and creates a sustainable pathway to the energy needs of the developing world.
