1.  Call for projects: energy poverty in developing countries.

For each MWh of EKOenergy sold, minimum 10 eurocent go the EKOenergy Climate Fund. That money will be used to invest in climate projects that would not have happened without the contributions. We have just launched a 'Call for projects', searching for small scale energy poverty projects in developing countries. Click here for the 'Call for projects'. Deadline for submissions is September 15th, 2013.
