Renewable World

Every person deserves the right to determine their own future. Access to energy and a clean environment makes this possible. We envision a Renewable World, where energy is readily accessible to all, helping to end extreme poverty and reduce climate change. Our programmes in Nepal and Kenya bring renewable energy to scale for poor communities, (em)powering thousands to lead a better life.


We should all be able to keep warm and healthy at home, but millions of people are struggling to afford the energy they need to do so. Each year around 10,000 people die as a result of living in a cold home. Cold homes can also cause or worsen a range of serious health conditions such as heart attacks, strokes, bronchitis, and asthma; can have a significant impact on mental health and is a known risk factor for suicide. National Energy Action (NEA) work towards eradicating fuel poverty across the UK and enable millions of people to live in a warm home.
