Our journey

We began in 2007 as the Koru Foundation with a singular goal: to act as the link between the sector and the energy-poor communities who are most vulnerable to climate change.

We became Renewable World in 2008. Since then, we have reached over 123,000 people in more than 150 communities throughout South Asia, East Africa, and Central America. Our projects deliver clean energy solutions to some of the world’s biggest problems.

We have over 15 years’ experience to draw on and lots more to do. We are energised about the impact we can achieve in transforming lives and tackling climate change, through partnerships, piloting innovation, and delivering systemic locally led projects.

Our strategy for 2023-26 recognises that, if the world is to make real progress towards achieving net zero by 2050, we need rapid, economy-wide transformation, including bold action to replace fossil fuels with clean energy.

Our new brand (October 2023) places clean energy (SDG7) at the heart of everything we do and everything we seek to achieve. With it, people and planet can thrive.
