A coalition to accelerate global energy access through energy-efficient appliances.
Efficiency for Access channels research and support for off- and weak-grid appropriate super-efficient appliances like refrigerators. Refrigeration increases productivity for families and businesses, reduces agricultural waste, and extends the shelf-life of health-saving medicines.
Super-efficient technologies can enable consumers to reach higher levels of energy access faster, improving the wellbeing of the poorest and most vulnerable people in the world. Beyond entertainment, technologies like TVs, radios, and cell phones improve access to news and information – especially for women and girls.
Efficiency for Access brings high-demand technologies to scale by invigorating markets and building partnerships. Fans are in high demand among off- and weak-grid consumers, particularly in hot and humid climates. Super-efficient appliances like fans improve productivity, income generation, and safety.
