20th century intelligence - ending poverty of half world without electricity -although Keynes 1936 (last capter general theiry money inetrest emplymen) asked Economists to take hipocrati oath as the profession that ended extreme poverty, most economists did the opposite. Whats not understandable is how educatirs failed to catalogue the lessons of the handful who bottom-up empowered vilages to collaboratively end poverty. There are mainly 2 inteligences to understand- Borlaug on food; fazle abed on everything that raised life expectancy in tropical viage asia from low 40s to 60s (about 7 below norm of living with electricity and telecomes). Between 1972 and 2001, Abed's lessons catalogued in this mooc had largelu built the nation of Bangladesh and been replicated with help of Unicef's James Grant acroo most tropical asian areas. What's exciting is the valley's mr ad mrs steve jobs invted Fazle Abed to share inteligences 2001 at his 65th birthday party. The Jobs and frineds promised to integrate abed's inteligence into neighborhod university stanfrd which in any event wanted Jobs next great leap the iphone. The Valley told abed to start a university so that women graduates from poor and rich nations could blend inteligence as Abed's bottom of the pyramid vilage began their journey of leapfrog modles now that gridd infarstructures were ni longer needed for sdiar and mobile. Abed could also help redesign the millennium goals which were being greenwashed into a shared worldwide system coding frame by 2016. There re at Abed's 80th birtday party , the easy bitwas checking this mooc was uptodate. The hard bit - what did Abed mean by his wish to headhunt a taiwanese american to head the university's 3rd decade starting 2020?

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.  

Best regards,

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.
