Decentralized Renewables Combatting Climate Change

By 2030, replacing kerosene lamps and diesel generators with off-grid distributed renewables could save nearly a gigaton of CO2e each year—equal to the annual emissions of Germany, the world's 4th largest economy. Share this graphic and join our call for a cleaner, healthier future!

Key to Closing the Energy Access Gap

To meet Sustainable Development Goal 7—clean, affordable, modern energy for all—by 2030 we need a 'revolution' in progress towards the universal energy access target. This infographic, based on data and analysis by the Overseas Development Institute, is a stark illustration of how far we are off track. But decentralized solutions—such as mini-grids and solar home systems—are key to closing the energy access progress gap, and will ensure that 1+ billion people are not left behind.

100 Partners to Share

Reaching Power for All will take the Action of Many. And without those who form our campaign—practitioners, advocates, villagers, officials, funders—we can't succeed. To celebrate everyone who is working to achieve energy access, and to mark reaching our 100 partner milestone, we have created a shareable image. We hope you will use it, and join us in demanding that energy access does not have to wait!

India: Global Leader in Electricity Access

Energy access in India is a $48 billion dollar a year opportunity. The country has the most unelectrified people of any country in the world. It is also the biggest single market for distributed renewable energy (DRE) solutions. Below is an infographic that spotlights the momentum and huge untapped potential for DRE in India.

Decentralized Renewables: No Target, No Universal Electricity Access

Over the past year, Power for All and its campaign partners have worked to build a case for two things: 1. that achieving universal energy access before 2030 and 2. that governments must lead on creating a policy and regulatory framework for accelerated DRE deployment

Infographic: India $48 billion annual energy access opportunity

India is the world’s largest single market for providing energy access, with 304 million people or 43 million households officially still unelectrified (depending on the data source). The government has targeted 2022 for 24x7 nationwide electrification. The problem is massive, but so is the opportunity for decentralized renewable energy (DRE).

Distributed renewables = jobs and business

India is a leader in the global surge in renewable energy jobs. According to IRENA’s recent 2017 report, India currently represents 385,000 jobs, making it the 4th largest national jobs market behind China, the United States and Brazil. Meanwhile, new CEEW and NRDC research projects India will create 1 million jobs by 2022 if the government hits its target of 175 GW of renewable energy. Within this greater context, delivering power to India’s 269.8 million unelectrified rural poor offers it’s own distinct opportunity.

The policy environment for decentralized renewable energy plays a huge role in how fast electrification can proceed. This graph shows how many low energy access countries have enabling policies in place, and makes clear the logic behind our call for action.

Calls to Action
Act Now

To change the energy access trajectory we need to reach a huge audience: everyone from politicians to professors, energy users to investment bankers, local women's’ groups to tribal leaders. Help us spread the message and get this report in front of as many people as possible. While the traditional utilities have the cash, institutional reach and political influence, we have people power.

Making the switch from a familiar energy source to a new solution is a significant commitment, so peer to peer endorsement and over-the-odds benefits are key. Thankfully, for solar lights and solar home systems, big benefits have led to big recommendation.

The race is on for energy access in Africa

Your voice needs to be heard. With the release of Power for All’s new report, “Decentralized Renewables: The Fast Track to Energy Access”, we ask that you join in our call to action by sharing these infographics on Twitter and Facebook, calling on the African Development Bank to take steps to accelerate energy access.

Distributed solar is a jobs creation engine

The decentralized renewable industry in emerging markets like Africa and South Asia still lacks comprehensive and up-to-date numbers on total number of jobs created, but IRENA just put out a new report that hints at the huge untapped potential for employment (see chart below). Previously, IRENA forecast that the off-grid renewable energy sector would create 4.5 million jobs globally by 2030. UNEP has also estimated that off-grid lighting could create 500,000 jobs in Western Africa alone.

Clean Energy is Changing the Gender Equation

Today women are taking a lead in clean energy access, with nearly a quarter of solar jobs in the US going to women and female solar engineers in Zanzibar able to earn 20 percent more than the average monthly wage. Share this infographic to highlight how women are powering clean energy.
