Lighting a Billion Lives (LaBL) – this is what India needs at this moment, with thousands of villages having no access to electricity.
TERI has already steered the process of providing solar lanterns to a billion rural households across developing nations through their flagship campaign – Lighting a Billion Lives (LaBL). To further LaBL, it has formed a forum to discuss the opportunities and cohesively work towards lighting a billion lives, The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) along with manufacturers of solar technologies came together to form LaBL Partners in Technology (PaT), a unique forum introduced by TERI.
LaBL-PaT will aim at delivering a reliable and field worthy solar lighting device for rural households. The capability that India develops in this area could also have huge export potential.
