E+Co is a public purpose, not-for-profit organization with offices in Africa, Asia, Europe, Latin America and North America. Its mission and sole focus is to empower local small and medium sized enterprises that supply clean, modern and affordable energy to households, businesses and communities in developing countries. It does this by providing enterprise development services and investment capital. E+Co’s work is directly targeted to the twin problems of energy poverty and energy waste in developing countries. E+Co’s goal is to establish sustainable market-based energy enterprises that provide clean energy to the “energy poor”, those using traditional expensive, unhealthy and unreliable energy, and that produce clean and efficient energy additions to the electricity grid, addressing “energy waste”. E+Co pioneered and is the leading practitioner of the enterprise-centered model of investing in the clean energy sector. E+Co is dedicated to pursuing change on a global basis, as the challenge is enormous and can only be meaningfully addressed through a global shift in the energy development and finance paradigm.
