Support Clean Energy Access Entrepreneurs


The entrepreneurs we work with are addressing the UN's Sustainable Development Goal #7 which targets by 2030:

  • Universal access to affordable, reliable, and modern energy services

  • Increase substantially the share of renewable energy in the global energy mix

  • Double the global rate of improvement in energy efficiency

Achieving these goals are necessary to improve the quality of life of people living in poverty while fighting climate change, the effects of which are disproportionately felt by the global poor.

Our Commitment to Climate Resilience 

Miller Center has worked with more than 115 social enterprises whose primary focus is on providing clean energy access. Our expertise in this sector has been captured in a series of white papers shown on this page.

Partnering with USAID and New Ventures India for Energy Access

Energy Access India was a program run by Miller Center and New Ventures from 2015 to 2018, with the support of USAID, which helped 30 renewable energy companies raise $40 million of investment and provide clean energy to over 2.5 million Indians through a customized capacity development and investment facilitation program.
