We improve people's access to clean energy to transform lives & tackle climate change


I believe that we (humanity) are not doing enough to avoid harmful levels of global warming and sadly it is often poorer countries who have contributed least to climate change who are often expected to fare the worst from the these changes. In the last two climate talks I have given I have been struck by the powerful sense of injustice that individuals in the audience who have strong links to less developed countries feel about this.

I really do believe that renewable technologies already in existence are the key to solving the problem. I only have to look at my own home which I built 7 years ago and installed approximately 9KW of solar panels to realise the potential. I also realise that I am fortunate that my career and place of birth has afforded me this opportunity and I would like others to also have this opportunity. For this reason I would like to raise money for Renewable World, a charity based in Brighton who aim to help marginalised communities utilise renewable technologies. If you want to understand a bit more about the impact they have take a look here

Our fundraising will be supporting projects like Renewable World’s Clean Energy for Health project in Kenya. This project will transform healthcare in remote and off-grid clinics in Kajiado West, southern Kenya. It will do so by installing bespoke solar energy systems and ensuring that energy-enabled equipment (such as refrigerators, nebulisers and sterilisers) are available and operational. This will mean that these clinics can extend their opening hours (e.g. into the evening), offer more services and, crucially, keep vaccines and medicines refrigerated (avoiding vaccine and medicine spoilage that often happens when these clinics have to rely on gas to power a refrigerator).
