Efficiency for Access
A coalition to accelerate global energy access through energy-efficient appliances
Just as super-efficient LED technology has unlocked the benefits of modern lighting for millions around the globe, other appliances promise cooling, communications, mechanization, and refrigeration to millions more, with improved outcomes for health, education, and productivity and livelihoods.
Efficiency for Access is a global coalition working to promote high performing appliances that contribute to clean energy access for the world’s poorest people. It is a catalyst for change, accelerating the growth of off-grid appliance markets to boost incomes, reduce carbon emissions, improve quality of life and support sustainable development. Current Efficiency for Access Coalition members have programs and initiatives spanning three continents, 44 countries, and 22 technologies. By joining forces under the Efficiency for Access Coalition, our members provide more effective financial and technical support to the high-performing appliance sector.
