Access to Clean Energy Technology Could Change The Lives Of Millions Of People.
There are over 750 million people in the world that live in remote locations such that there only source of electricity comes from diesel generators. Diesel is expensive to transport and handle to these locations and it reduce air quality while contributing to climate change through CO2 emissions.
