Seeking great content
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. As you may have seen, we’ve recently spotlighted a new report by Smart Power India and the Initiative for Sustainable Energy Policy looking at rural consumer satisfaction with electricity service, innovative work being done in Myanmar by Mee Panyar to transition villages from diesel to solar, and a new #1000solutions initiative from the Solar Impulse Foundation seeking new companies to join. We will be producing more video as well, so we also welcome any footage you have. And we’re starting to highlight the people employed by the sector as part of our #PoweringJobs campaign.
#PoweringJobs photo series: putting SDG7 to work
As part of our Powering Jobs campaign, we are starting to highlight the inspiring people who are employed by the electricity access sector. If you have employees with inspiring stories who you'd like to feature, please send us their photo and a brief personal introduction. We're interested in people from all parts of the energy access sector, with both soft and hard skills -- O&M technicians, engineers, heads of finance, sales and marketing, software developers, you name it. And not just direct employment, we'd also love to feature the people and businesses who are creating employment and work opportunities because of getting access to electricity. Our first featured employee: 31-year-old Brajesh Biswal, an engineer working for mini-grid developer Mlinda in India.
