Electricity Access

Not all energy is consumed equally across the world. An estimated 16 percent of the world’s population — 1.2 billion people — have little or no access to electricity. Because of lack of access to electricity and modern energy sources, people around the world,  especially in rural communities, struggle to break out of the cycle of poverty.

For this challenge, we’re asking you to build a solution to increase accessibility to electricity, thereby providing the foundation of heating and cooling in temperate climates; and power/lighting to local infrastructures such as schools, hospitals, and businesses.
