Rural Spark, founded in 2013, is providing high quality energy solutions for rural India. Since it founding, over 100 Local Energy Suppliers have provided energy for over 5.000 people. However, the big market entry is yet to happen with the newly produced solution: the Rural Spark Energy Kit allows customers (Local Energy Suppliers) to generate electricity for their own usage as well as to sell to their fellow villagers, becoming resilient entrepreneurs. This tested solution is the first step in a smartly connected energy network.
With over 400 million people without access to electricity, rural India provides a unique opportunity to leapfrog existing top-down centralised energy solutions, and build the right grid from scratch, together with rural India.
