Liter of Light Wins 2015 Zayed Future Energy Prize for Its “Open Source” Energy Program
January 28, 2015
Energy Access Practitioner Network member, MyShelter Foundation’s Liter of Light, was declared the Zayed Future Energy Prize 2015 winner in the NGO category for its work in the Philippines and around the world. MyShelter Foundation’s Liter of Light project was recognized as an ‘open source’ energy program that uses locally available technology to build skills and provide energy access to underserved off-grid communities. Liter of Light uses a bottle filled with bleach and water to refract light, providing both day and night lighting solutions equivalent to a 55-watt solar light bulb, sourcing components and creating requisite skills at the base of the pyramid. Liter of light began in the Philippines and is now a global movement. To learn more, go to: http://aliteroflight.org/about-us/.
