Promote access to energy for all

We want to grow the renewable energy sector in developing countries, where sustainable energy can have a significant positive impact on families and communities.

As a global leader in the renewable energy sector, EDPR defined a clear strategy for Access to Energy (A2E): to provide clean energy in developing countries based on energy efficiency and decentralized renewable energy solutions, that promote sustainable development of the communities involved.

1,200 MILLION PEOPLE


HAVE NO ACCESS TO ENERGY

This positioning is not only aligned with EDPR’s business, but also with its commitment to the United Nation’s 2030 agenda since it strongly contributes to the SDG 7: Affordable and Clean Energy, which aims to ensure access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all. Additionally, by using renewable energy solutions, the program also contributes to the SDG 13: Climate Action, which emphasizes the need to take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts.

Our strategy:

  • 12M€

    of investment in A2E companies by 2020

  • 1M€

    in philanthropic initiatives

  • 200,000 

    people impacted in 3 years

The main goal of EDPR’s A2E strategy is to become a leading reference in the renewable off-grid energy market with profitable business cases and high impact on the communities.  Access to renewable energy makes the difference for people not connected to the electricity grid, not only by providing sustainable energy services but also by enabling improvement on health and education conditions, job creation and new economic activities. Moreover, the use of clean energies and the promotion of energy efficiency will have a positive impact on the environment.

The A2E initiative will strongly contribute to increase EDPR’s vision of a sustainable, safe and healthy world a reality.
