Every day that families are trapped in energy poverty, there is a huge cost; a billion people lose out on the health, education, and opportunity that comes with access to clean, affordable power. Multilateral Development Banks (MDBs) have much needed goals to end energy poverty but still focus most of their energy funding on projects that take many years to complete. Rapidly deployable decentralized renewables can bring energy access to millions much quicker.

We are calling MDBs to take actions to accelerate energy access so we can #endenergypovertyfaster

Use these social media tools to help #endenergypovertyfaster 

  • Get sharing: Share Power for All updates, graphics and images on Twitter and Facebook and use the hashtag #endenergypovertyfaster
  • Keep the momentum going: Tag or mention other people and organizations you know that are interested in energy access to get them involved
  • Maximise your impact: Tag key decision-makers in your Tweets and remind them to get behind the sector. We’ve included sample tweets withTwitter handles below so you can start straight away
