Decentralized renewable energy is the faster path to power for all

Energy Policy

Accelerating the global energy transition powered by a young workforce

To be successful, the energy transition will require a generational transition as well. New ideas, new leadership, and new opportunities depend on putting young people at the center of shaping the future of energy systems in Africa and Asia. The time for business-as-usual approaches is ending, as we take the first steps toward the next energy generation and a new legacy.

Who We Are

2 billion people—almost a third of humanity—lack access to reliable energy. 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.
