“This year has been declared the “Year of Light.” It is easy to see why.” OPIC President and CEO Elizabeth Littlefield wrote in a recent post on the State Department’s DipNote blog.

“Roughly 1.3 billion of the world’s poorest still have no access to electricity. Small-scale, off-grid renewable power, mostly solar, is now accomplishing what far too many governments in developing nations have failed to do for generations: supply remote homes and businesses with comparatively low-cost energy for basic needs.”

In the post, Littlefield describes the potential of off-grid power and the four drivers of the off-grid energy trend. Read Littlefield’s blog on DipNote and learn more information about the benefits of access to power across the developing world and OPIC’s work with in the off-grid clean energy industry.
