A coalition to accelerate clean energy access through high-performing appliances

Efficiency for Access is a catalyst for change, accelerating the growth of off-grid appliance markets to boost incomes, reduce carbon emissions, improve quality of life and support sustainable development.

About the Coalition

Just as super-efficient LED technology has unlocked the benefits of modern lighting for millions around the globe, other appliances promise cooling, communications, mechanization, and refrigeration to millions more, with improved outcomes for health, education, and productivity, and livelihoods.

Efficiency for Access is a global coalition working to promote high performing appliances that contribute to clean energy access for the world’s poorest people.

Efficiency for Access Coalition members have programs and initiatives spanning three continents, 44 countries, and 22 technologies. By engaging with the Efficiency for Access Coalition, stakeholders can become part of a global community working together toward shared goals.

  • Aid agencies and foundations can connect with a network of peers to share experiences, explore synergies and co-funding opportunities.
  • Companies can receive funding, technical assistance and explore partnership opportunities with Coalition members and implementing partners.
  • Investors can gain access to the latest market intelligence and explore co-investment opportunities with the EforA Investor Network.
  • Implementing partners can work with the Coalition to deliver innovative programs that address market barriers and address other sector needs.

The Efficiency for Access Coalition is coordinated jointly by CLASP and UK’s Energy Saving Trust, which specializes in energy efficiency product verification, data and insight, advice, and research.
