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


The impacts of climate change are being felt around the world and sadly it is often poorer countries, who have contributed least to climate change, who are expected to fare the worst from these changes. As a global community we are currently not doing enough to slow global warming and recognise the negative impacts. 

Renewable energy technology provides a clean and sustainable alternative to some of the key contributors to the problem. The recent energy pricing hikes in the UK are also a timely reminder that climate change is not the only downside of our reliance on fossil fuels. 

For these reasons I am taking part in this charity event 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 https://renewable-world.org/our-impact/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).
