SELCO firmly believes that an end-user centric, demand driven approach on ecosystem building leads to interventions that are long-term and replicable. Ecosystem approach recognises the pressing need to develop a fertile environment to enhance sustainable energy access solutions for the poor. One other critical output of such an approach is that it deliberately pushes for local ownership from end to end with very few dependencies on externalities: a holistic and decentralised approach to development. Since its inception, SELCO Foundation has been focused on creating and strengthening the ecosystem for last mile energy solutions for poor people across varied contexts.
