Winter Forum 2019

Mobilizing Technology and Business Models to Close the Energy Gap

Globally, 1.1 billion people around the world lack basic electricity, and billions more lack access to the reliable, affordable, and sustainable energy systems that form the backbone of job creation and broader economic growth. How this shortfall is addressed over the coming decades will have resounding impacts on broader development outcomes, the environment, and U.S. and global security. From solar and batteries to telecom and mobile money, technology is enabling new approaches and business models for solving the energy access challenge. Scale-up your knowledge, sharpen your story-telling, and unleash your creativity in a competition for solutions to end global energy poverty.
