Lighting Global works around the world

to rapidly increase access to off-grid solar energy for the one billion people living without grid electricity world-wide. To date, more than 131 million people have benefited from using Lighting Global quality verified solar lighting products, and more than 39.5 million people have had their basic (Tier 1) lighting needs met. Our joint IFC/World Bank program delivers value to clients through the complementary levers of government and private sector, deploying the relative resources of two distinctly different institutions in an integrated way:

  • IFC works with its private sector clients and partners to build supply chains and mobilize private investment
  • World Bank partners with government to support the enabling environment and mobilize public capital.
