Global Energy Heroes Prize


Three community-based sustainability organizations have won the first (2020) Global Energy Heroes prizes from Stanford University’s Precourt Institute for Energy.

Mee Panyar is helping remote communities in Myanmar upgrade their miniature electric grids, replacing costly diesel generators with solar power. Solar Freeze provides solar-powered refrigerated storage and transportation of produce to small-scale farmers in Kenya. Takataka Plastics is recycling low-value plastic waste in Uganda into high-demand construction materials. Each organization gets $20,000 to advance their enterprise.

Congratulations to the 2020 Global Energy Heroes!
