We are a social enterprise that believe in the power of improving our planet.
An estimated 1.1 billion people worldwide live without access to electricity. While a majority of the world's current electricity supply is generated from fossil fuels, these traditional energy sources face a number of challenges. This includes rising prices, security concerns over dependence on imports from a limited number of countries with fossil fuel supplies, and growing environmental concerns over the climate change risks associated with power generation using fossil fuels.
PowerUp Investment started with the idea of how we could find a sustainable way to end energy poverty. We were interested in exploring a model in which investors can gain profit at the same time as they are enabling development in growing markets.
