EASE stands for Enabling Access to Sustainable Energy. The EASE partnership aims to bring modern energy products to the rural poor in developing countries, by facilitating the upscaling processes in the rural energy sector and local energy markets.
EASE partners do not believe that the energy problems of the poor can be resolved with a mere technological breakthrough or through large scale financial support.
Instead, EASE projects start by better understanding the realities of the energy needs of the poor, and their local energy markets of shopkeepers, technicians, promoters and (micro)financiers.
By presenting the bottlenecks in these local markets, EASE partners design and implement projects with a lasting impact.
