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.
