About Renewable World
1.2 billion people are still living in poverty, inequality is rising, and the world is failing to decarbonize quickly enough to avoid climate disaster. The world’s poorest people contributed little to climate change, yet they are most impacted, and least able to adapt. This is not fair. And it is not sustainable.
Renewable World (RW) is an ambitious and dynamic International NGO (INGO) headquartered in the UK, with branches in Nepal and Kenya.
We envision a sustainable and fairer world where clean energy is accessible to all-because with clean energy, both people and planet can thrive. By2030, we aim to enable over 500,000 people living in poverty to transform their lives by improving their access to clean energy, empowering them to develop sustainable and resilient livelihoods, and mitigating the impact of climate change.
We have recently surpassed our 2022 goal of reaching 100,000 people by the end of 2022, and now have ambitious plans to scale our impact to 2030 and beyond. We focus on four key areas where we believe we can achieve the greatest impact in transforming lives through clean energy:
- Energy for Livelihoods: Improving incomes and welfare through using energy for productive purposes, with a focus on reaching the poorest and empowering women and the socially excluded.
- Energy for Climate Change: Helping people adapt to climate change and protect ecosystems through energy-enabled climate-smart agriculture and early warning systems and mitigating climate change through clean energy and carbon offsetting.
- Energy for Health and Education: Using renewable energy to supply clean water for drinking, health and sanitation, electrifying remote health centers and schools to improve health and education outcomes, and enabling cleaner cooking.
- Energy for Catalytic Impact: Developing systemic impact and activating demand through the productive use of energy, sustainable multi-stakeholder partnerships, and piloting scalable innovations.
We aim to live and breathe our ENERGY values which are: Excellence; Networked; Empathy;
Resourceful; Gravitas; and Yes we can.
We have doubled in size over the last three years, with an income of over USD3.5 million p.a. and 30 staff. This growth has been driven largely through program expansion in Nepal and RW’s voluntary carbon offsetting program. At present, we have a portfolio of eight projects, of which six are in Nepal and two are in Kenya, and we are expecting to bring new projects on board in the coming year. Our new Country Director will be pivotal in shaping an ambitious, innovative and impactful pipeline of new projects, and overseeing their delivery.
