At Powertrust, we believe that barriers and boundaries are preventing the private sector from investing in renewable energy projects which have the most impact. 

Powertrust helps corporations maximize the impact of their renewable energy procurement.


 

Beyond Carbon Impact 

Powertrust projects focus on more than displacing dirty grids with clean energy. 

 

We focus on high impact projects that also address several UN Sustainable Development Goals. 

We Believe Location Matters

Powertrust projects are located in countries that have the highest CO2 intensity. Our projects focus on having the largest climate impact by displacing dirty fuels, such as diesel generators and coal, with renewable energy. 

Renewable energy built in emerging markets can have 3-6x the climate impact of a traditional Power Purchase Agreement in North America or Europe.

We Believe We Must Address Energy Poverty 

Over 759 million people continue to lack access to basic electricity and another 2 billion people suffer from inadequate and unreliable access. 

Powertrust focuses on catalyzing energy projects in rural areas with low energy access rates. We electrify hospitals, health care centres, schools and small businesses.
