Hivos opts for 100 per cent renewable energy, both in the Netherlands and in developing countries. Energy is a vital driving force for development. 
Access to energy can alleviate poverty, improve living conditions and propel economic development.

New developments such as the Sustainable Energy for All (SE4ALL) initiative of the UN, provides ample opportunities for Hivos and local civil society organizations to influence decision-making and funding into this direction.
