Show Notes

Wim Jonker Klunne speaks to Enlit Africa's Claire Volkwyn about the Household Solar Funders Group, an initiative which brings together 36 funders active in the field of household solar in Africa.

The aim is to accelerate access to energy (SDG7) through collaboration on activities which address market barriers and benefit from a collective approach.

“Collaboration will help in providing energy access to currently unserved populations and is needed to protect and expand the impact achieved to date by the sector,” said Wim Jonker Klunne, HSFG coordinator.

“We have identified a number of key priority areas where its members can work together to amplify impact.”
