Green Village Ventures is currently in the process of scaling up its innovative rural lighting project from some 15 villages in Uttar Pradesh in 2012 to 1 million participating families across India by 2018. To reach this ambitious goal, Green Village Ventures has joined forces with GDF Suez Rassembleurs d’Energies and Graméen Crédit Agricole. These two distinguished European impact investment funds focus on social inclusion and the provision of basic sustainable energy solutions to vulnerable populations worldwide.
Green Village Ventures is also working closely with India Post, one of India’s most revered bedrock institutions. This collaboration gives Green Village Ventures access to customers at over 139,000 post offices across rural India. As explained earlier, Green Village Ventures will initially focus on providing rural lighting solutions, followed by other basic energy services as it expands. Green Village Ventures will be launching a second investment round to fund its expansion in 2014.
