#peoplepowered: Early-stage solutions by grassroots innovators bring sustainable energy to remote and vulnerable populations

Many women and men innovate in the margins to solve problems for their communities.

The UNDP Accelerator Labs are on a mission to learn from and celebrate grassroots innovators and their ability to connect communities to sustainable, reliable and affordable energy sources.

Through the Accelerator Lab Network, we are amplifying grassroots-led solutions to move beyond business-as-usual top-down development programs. The Labs tap into collective intelligence using ethnography, teaming up with students and connecting innovators to each other and to policy makers.

With #peoplepowered, we celebrate local energy solutions and surface actionable intelligence to inform how we move forward to achieve universal clean energy for all.
