EVENT IS RAIN OR SHINE
Empower Generation is a social enterprise that connects renewable energy technology (RET) suppliers with female entrepreneurs at the base of the economic pyramid (BoP)—those living on less than $2.50 per day. We provide women with the technical training and support to start their business, and offer BoP energy-consumers microfinancing for RET purchases. Supplying clean energy to the 1.6 billion people living without access to electricity is one of the largest business opportunities of our time, and women are the key to unlocking this potential. Already acting as household energy managers and disproportionally undervalued in their communities, our entrepreneurs are empowered to become the leaders of the clean-energy revolution. Our work increases local economic opportunities, promotes gender equality, and combats the root causes of poverty.
