Access to Modern Energy is increasingly recognized as an area of humanitarian concern. If communities affected by crises go without proper access to energy, it becomes impossible for them to meet the basic needs of life.

To continue inspiring our readers, we will increasingly be sharing our coalitions stories about projects that serve as excellent examples of humanitarian innovation in action. In particular, we will be spotlighting projects that have collaborated with different partners to fulfill their desired impact. If you want a project to be spotlighted within the coalition, get in touch!
