Campaign Update: February 2019
Power for All updated its website last year with the goal of improving our ability to spotlight more of the great stories coming out of the decentralized renewables sector. With that in mind, we are actively seeking to co-create content with you.
Women #PoweringJobs in Senegal

Powering Agriculture With Renewable Energy: A Just Transition for Food Systems
The modern, fossil-fueled agrifood system is a significant contributor to climate change, accounting for a third of GHG emissions. Its dependence on fossil fuels, combined with inequitable access to resources, renders it unsustainable.
The Decentralized Renewable Energy (DRE) sector is uniquely positioned to combat energy poverty and enable female empowerment by freeing up productive time, providing employment opportunities, and improving their overall well-being.
You can download the Energy Access Workforce Ethiopia report to learn about the victories, challenges, and possibilities the decentralized renewable energy (DRE) sector brings.
As part of the ongoing Powering Jobs Campaign, the global report for 2022 is complete, after gathering inputs from peer reviewers, and it is now in the design stage. Our research team has started finalizing the in-country draftseports for India, Kenya, Nigeria, and Ethiopia and these will be ready by the end of July 2022 for peer review.
As part of the ongoing Powering Jobs campaign, the third round of steering committee meetings was held in June, starting with the global committee on June 6, followed by the Kenyan, Nigerian, and Indian committees on June 8, 9, and 10, respectively.
Power for All was well represented at the Sustainable Energy for All Forum in Kigali, Rwanda. The team, led by our CEO Kristina Skierka, also co-chaired two-panel discussions at the event, ‘Transitioning to the Grid of the Future’ and ‘Powering Jobs: Building a Workforce to Meet the SGD 7 Challenge’. The Powering Jobs campaign kicked off its first steering committee meeting in Ethiopia and held its second in Uganda. We also have the initial findings from our health survey from Jharkhand State in India. Read on for these and other updates from our campaigns.
