The UpEnergy team is honored and humbled to be among Fast Company’s Top 10 Most Innovative Companies in Africa for 2014.
UpEnergy shares the list with many other inspiring organizations and our congratulations go out to everyone that was nominated in this category. Many thanks to our supporters, partners and customers without whom we could not continue to deliver high-quality, clean energy technology in Uganda.
According to Fast Company, UpEnergy was selected
“For making it safer to cook in rural Africa. Millions of people in rural Uganda are still using inefficient and dangerous means of cooking, like three-stone fires and kerosene. UpEnergy has set out to both protect the environment and people by supporting distribution channels that benefit both large businesses (through carbon credits) and local retailers (through direct sales support and guidance) to make available safer, greener, and more efficient cookstoves, water purification technologies, and solar lights.”
