Transforming communities with access to clean, reliable, affordable energy.

Acumen started investing in Energy in 2007 and our work in Energy is now impacting tens of millions of lives. Our companies are leading innovations in hand-held solar power, distributed energy to rural communities, bio-gasification systems, and more. We are truly seeing the impact these multiple energy sources are having on the lives of their customers. In some cases, people have access to light after the sun goes down for the first time ever.

Why Energy?

Acumen’s Energy Portfolio supports solutions that are closing the gap in access to clean, safe, and affordable electricity faced by 1.5 billion and the further 3 billion people who lack access to modern fuels. Access to clean, affordable, energy has tremendous impacts for the poor in areas of education, increased income, environment, and health.
