ALER is a member of the UN Foundation's Energy Access Practitioner Network

ALER is proud to join the Energy Access Practitioner Network, a global platform that brings together energy service providers and stakeholders from 170 countries to support the delivery of clean, reliable, and affordable decentralized energy as a contribution to the United Nations’ Sustainable Energy For All Initiative (SE4All) goal of universal energy access by 2030 by: (i) promoting innovation in policy, technology, business and financing; (ii) amplifying the voice of practitioners in high-level decision-making and (iii) facilitating increased funding and financing of decentralized energy solutions.

It is the leading global network facilitating interaction between the public and private sectors – sharing knowledge, driving new partnerships, and promoting accelerated action on energy access.

ALER is truly excited as we join forces with the Practitioner Network to catalyze the scale-up of renewable and low-carbon technologies and spur the Portuguese-speaking markets toward universal energy access. The Network’s particular focus is on the removal of market barriers to the effective delivery of energy services by promoting the adoption of new technologies and innovative financial and business models, as well as the identification and dissemination of best practices and advocacy for universal energy access.

The Practitioner Network has over 2,300 members who represent small, medium, and large clean energy enterprises, civil society, government, and academia. There is a Membership Directory available on the website where you can search members and filter by location, industry, area of expertise and more.
