Today, a coalition of global energy sector leaders launched a first-of-its-kind integrated energy pilot in Uganda. Led by Uganda’s largest power utility, Umeme, coordinated by Power for All and funded by The Rockefeller Foundation, the Utilities 2.0 Twaake pilot project unites Umeme Ltd, the centralized power utility company and several leading Uganda-based distributed renewable energy companies (DREs) to provide affordable, reliable, and clean power for all in what has been described as the utilities of the future.
Collaborate to Accelerate Access
Utilities 2.0 is a global initiative to unite centralized utilities and the decentralized renewable energy sector to end energy poverty faster.
In collaboration, centralized and decentralized electricity providers can design an optimal mix of energy technologies and service levels, solving for least-cost electrification in the fastest timeline possible.
Utilities 2.0 is made possible thanks to the generous support of Jim Rogers and The Rockefeller Foundation.
