Energies for Climate is a global campaign aiming to accelerate the transition towards low-carbon and accessible energy for everyone, launched by MakeSense in partnership with EDF.

Our mission is to empower citizens, entrepreneurs and organisations to find, support and create high-impact solutions that address their local issues of access, consumption and low-carbon energy production.

What is Energies for Climate?

Energies for Climate is a global campaign aiming to accelerate the transition towards low-carbon and accessible energy for everyone, launched by MakeSense in partnership with EDF. Our mission is to empower citizens, entrepreneurs and organisations to find, support and create high-impact solutions that address their local issues of access, consumption and low-carbon energy production.

Energy is crucial to reach most of the UN Sustainable Development Goals; from its role in the eradication of poverty through advancements in health, education or economic development, to combating climate change through the development of clean energies.  

We believe that collectively, we have the resources and creativity to create and support transformative solutions that will enable everyone to have access to the energy they need to build a good life, while combating climate change and preserving our environment.

We created this program, so all players sharing the same vision can take action, connect, learn and access concrete tools to make a positive impact on this crucial issue.

Key challenges

PRODUCTION

How do we transform and diversify the way we produce energy, towards the development of low-carbon, decentralised energies ?

CONSUMPTION

How do we transform the way we consume energy, to promote consumption patterns and uses that preserve our resources and our quality of life?

ACCESS

How do we ensure that energy is locally accessible (both financially and technically speaking) to any citizen?

We believe that collectively, we have the ressources and creativity to create and support transformative solutions that will enable everyone to have access to the energy they need to build a good life, while combating climate change and preserving our environment.
