E & Co.

Program

E+Co's approach is to empower local small and medium enterprises that supply clean and affordable energy to households, businesses and communities in developing countries. We do this through the "enterprise centered model" of providing business development services and investment capital to enterprises. A sample of the services provided includes: Market assessment and segmentation; Technology validation; Business plan development; Risk identification and mitigation; Financial modelling; Creation of legal agreements, Regulatory/Central Bank compliance; Operational problem resolution; Securing next stage financing; Monitoring and evaluation of financial, social and environmental impacts.

The combination of services and capital distinguishes E+Co's work from others in the clean energy field. Our model is based on supporting local entrepreneurs that deliver affordable, available and appropriate modern energy options to all but the "poorest" of the poor, recognizing that these enterprises can serve all customers, but that government and social subsidy is needed at the true "bottom of the pyramid".
