Join LightWorks at ASU and SSF with CrossBoundary, and rural microgrid developers in a 90-minute webinar exploring innovations in profitably financing off grid (Minigrids) energy solutions in remote villages that can spark economic development and lead to sustainable rural energy markets and fight poverty. The models apply to rural America.

The Mini-Grid Innovation Lab, established by CrossBoundary Advisory and The Rockefeller Foundation in 2018, and supported by Energy4Impact, works with mini-grid developers to identify and test innovative prototypes that improve the business model.
