2nd Annual UN-DESA Energy Grant (2016) - Powering the Future We Want
UNDESA, 2016
by: United Nations Department of Economic and Social Affairs (UNDESA)

The eight finalists of the 2016 Energy Grant Programme presented projects ranging from sustainable maritime transport, to urban electric busses with state-of-the-art technology, to compressed air mechanization for emissions-free vehicles. The finalists demonstrated through their initiatives and actions on the ground how they are contributing to the United Nations vision of sustainable energy, as embodied in the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. We recognize their commitment to enhancing the role of sustainable transport in connecting people and communities to jobs, schools and health care and to the delivery of goods and services to rural and urban communities.
