Transportation of cookstove liners to the market.

GVEP is working with entrepreneurs to tackle the barriers related to distribution of energy products in Kenya.

Over 1000 solar lamps will be put up for sale early February 2016, by women entrepreneurs in Tambacounda and Kédougou, Senegal. This will increase access to a healthy, sustainable and economical source of lighting to off-grid communities.

Ideas to Impact has announced the winners for the Cylinder prize as part of the Energy Access theme, managed by GVEP International and IMC Worldwide with prize design help from InnoCentive. The prize offered cash incentives to find high value alternative uses for substandard LPG cylinders when they are withdrawn from circulation. The Cylinder Prize attracted a lot of interest, with more than 180 solvers from 40 countries proposing solutions. Among all those proposals, seven solvers received an award for five different ideas.
