About US

The AREED program was built on the idea that small and medium-sized businesses that provide clean energy services can change the lives of people and help them minimize environmental impact.

Based on this, the program wants to increase access to energy by helping people in rural areas start businesses that use modern, clean, and reliable energy technologies to make money. These new businesses can meet the energy needs of people who don’t have access to enough energy while also reducing the negative effects on the environment and health of the way people use energy now, especially low-quality biomass fuels like wood and dung.
