The COVID-19 pandemic threatens to reverse the enormous progress off-grid energy companies have made to bring power to 470 million people in the last decade.
The new global economic crisis will make it more difficult for existing customers to pay for their energy services. At the same time, slowed supply chains and reduced investment flows are causing energy companies to run out of cash.
Facing dwindling liquidity, these energy companies will be forced to lay off staff - putting the sector's nearly 370,000 jobs at risk - and shut off customers' access to energy.
The COVID-19 Energy Access Relief Fund will bridge this funding gap to maintain the sector's progress in bringing energy to all.
