Energy for Growth
Energy should be a liberator. But in too many emerging and frontier economies, the lack of energy is a barrier to prosperity.
Limits to the Current Approach
The dominant approach to fighting energy poverty is to promote universal household access. Targeting consumption at home leads down a path toward small solutions and avoids tackling the systemic issues that are blocking a high-energy future.
The Hub promotes solutions that emphasize the energy demands of industry, commerce, and productive uses. We believe in a high-energy future for everyone.
