RAISING >2 BILLION HUMANS INTELLIGENCES BY 25 YEARS. After helping with recovery 1970 cyclone killing half a million of his compatriots, Fazle Abed was nearly assassinated by his employer Royal Dutch Shell and the Pakistani army. Fortunately he spent his remaining 50 years celebrating intelligence development of the poorest 2 billion parents notably growth of 1billiongirls. For over quarter of a century all networking was done by word of mouth and sight of book because in Asia 20th c village life still meant no access to electricity grids or telephone lines. Fortunately both Computing Whizs Jobs & Gates were both partly dis-satisfied with western apps of pc networks which they had begun in 1984. Around 2001 they both hosted silicon valley 65th birthday wish parties for Abed as global village tech envoy. Partners in life critical challenges had begun to bring abed's village mothers solar and mobile to co-create with. Abed changed the way Jobs saw tech futures of education (see ) and how Gates saw global health fund foundations and overall the valley's university stanford started to see as far as intelligence of Women and Youth goes the most life critical knowhow for 2 billion humans wasnt directly measurable in 90 day monetary flows; it was measurable in increased life expectancy by over 25 years during Abed's community servant leadership. Probably the greatest lift in intelligence until celebrations of what Fei-Fei Li opened the worlds eyes to in 2012, and Melinda Gates and Nvidia's Jensen Huang were first to helped AIforall lift since 2014.

Introducing P4G's New Energy Transition Partnerships

Dear christopher,

The energy transition is happening now – countries and companies are ready to deliver on commitments to a timebound shift away from fossil fuels to clean energy. It's essential they implement these changes at speed and scale. At P4G, our Energy Transition theme focuses on key priorities for our partner countries: increasing investment in a green energy supply, expanding zero emission mobility, and strengthening net zero building solutions in rural and urban centers.  

With 73% of global emissions resulting from energy consumption, inclusive multi-stakeholder partnerships provide solutions that help countries meet national commitments to reduce emissions. To succeed as commercial propositions, these partnerships need an enabling policy and regulatory environment. This will in turn ensure viable projects for investors looking to support a net zero future in developing countries.  

That’s where P4G’s newest energy partnerships come in – they aim to streamline their business solutions to expand investment in clean energy. In Kenya, we have two partnerships strengthening zero emissions mobility to support the government’s priority for an electric vehicle transition. ChargeUp! will deploy charging stations across Nairobi for e-bike riders to easily swap batteries. Meanwhile, PayGo for E-bikes will help Kenyan drivers finance the transition to electric bikes, while also providing affordable charges at small and medium businesses across the city.  

In Bangladesh, Smart Charging for Green Rides will use pay-as-you-go technology to make cheaper, longer-lasting batteries available to electric three-wheeler drivers. These partnerships all consider how improved technology will increase driver incomes and deliver greater equity in the sector. 

On the sustainable buildings side, One Stop Service for Energy Efficiency will make cooling systems in Indonesia more efficient by merging energy-saving technology, energy services providers, and finance providers into a single model.  

These new partnerships look to build on lessons learned from existing P4G partnerships. Models like Africa GreenCo demonstrate how P4G acceleration and network support can lead to institutional investment and regulatory approval – that results in delivering sustainable energy to people in rural Zambia who previously lacked access. Other solutions, like Energise Africa, are continuing to grow beyond their P4G scope as they look to expand into new sectors and geographies. We will continue bringing these energy partnerships together to share best practices and enhance their impact.

If you have partnerships delivering transformative solutions aligned with our Energy Transition theme or other P4G focus areas, we encourage you to apply for our Call for Partnerships by March 11.

Pioneering Green Partnerships


PayGo for E-bikes will provide electric bike drivers in Kenya with access to inexpensive, quick charging through digital credits. The partnership will also offer cost-effective pay-as-you-go options for drivers to switch to e-bikes. During the grant period, the partnership plans to roll out 1,000 PayGo e-bikes from three brands, improve access to inexpensive charging, and enable drivers to save about $1,000 annually. Learn how the partnership will create jobs and increase gender equity while helping Kenya advance its e-mobility priorities.

ChargeUp! will establish a network of 45 charging stations in Nairobi, Kenya, which will charge a flat battery swap fee for electric two and three-wheelers. In this partnership, drivers can conveniently swap out their batteries quickly and affordably, reducing operational costs and concerns about the battery not lasting long enough to complete their activities. This partnership’s focus on battery swapping will complement P4G’s e-mobility portfolio in Kenya and progress the government’s objectives for an electric vehicle strategy that meets Kenya’s emission reduction targets of 30% by 2030. Read more.

Smart Charging for Green Rides will improve the electric three-wheeler charging ecosystem in Bangladesh through pay-as-you-go (PayGo) technology for lithium-ion batteries, renewable energy generation, and more accessible financing. This model aims to increase driver income by 25% by providing access to better batteries and better financing. Learn more.

One Stop Service for Energy Efficiency will merge energy-saving technology, energy services providers, and finance providers into a single model to create a more efficient industrial cooling system in Indonesia. With four ready-to-execute cooling efficiency pipelines, this partnership can help meet Indonesia’s cooling demand while decreasing greenhouse gas emissions. Read more about how this partnership will save energy.
