        Energy for a Developing World

        In this video, meet an entrepreneur who is bringing solar energy to Bangladesh. Since 1976, Muhammad Yunus has been dedicated to fighting poverty and empowering women in Bangladesh and the world. He recognizes the importance of energy as a factor in economic growth for the poor people of Bangladesh. In 1996, Yunus started Grameen Shakti, a not-for-profit company, to promote, develop and popularize renewable energy technologies in remote areas of Bangladesh. By focusing on solar, biogas, and other forms of renewable energy, Grameen Shakti sees a future where rural households will have access to reliable, environmentally friendly energy at affordable costs.
