Access to energy is a basic need that enables people to develop and provide for other basic needs. For developing countries, it is the key to prosperity

Paul van Son – founder of Energy4all


Sustainable development needs energy. Energy provides the basis for the development of modern forms of healthcare, education, transport, production and communication. Many developing countries face a lack of affordable, reliable and clean energy. Solutions to this shortage are usually found not in large-scale power generation, but rather in small-scale installations in the direct environment of the entrepreneur, school or household. These often concern renewable energy, tailored to the potential of the specific location.


The Foundation Energy4All supports people in developing countries by promoting energy-related projects that stimulate economic development.
