A tremendous opportunity to make a difference by lighting a Billion Lives – Bringing Solar Light to Rural India; a new gasp of life for the energy poor – a rural initiative by TERI

Every night 61 million rural households in India use kerosene for lighting needs. Globally, 1.3 billion people do not have access to electricity and fight darkness with oil lamps which hampers their health, growth and productivity.

Request for Proposal (RfP) from suppliers/manufacturers/system integrators to facilitate energy access

The Energy and Resources Institute (TERI) under its flagship project, Lighting a Billion Lives© (LaBL) invites proposals from interested suppliers/manufacturers/system integrators to facilitate energy access in rural areas across the country, through the creation of a network of Energy Enterprises (EE). The EE network, proposed to be set up as such, would act as a medium through which suppliers/manufacturers/system integrators will be expected to sell their products and also provide necessary maintenance services. TERI shall use the strength of its institution to comprehensively complement the endeavor of the suppliers/manufacturers/system integrators so that the respective objectives of the said two stake holders viz. facilitating access to clean lighting energy options to the most needy rural consumer in the former case and catering to the vast existing rural market & consequently making profit out of the quality sales and services thereof in the former case, are realized. Suppliers/Manufacturers/System Integrators are therefore requested to submit a detailed business proposal elaborating on the technical, financial, and managerial aspects.
