Sustainable Energy for All Forum, New York, 2017

Arc’s Managing Director Nicola Armacost heavily participated at the 2017 Sustainable Energy for All Forum in New York. During the event kicking off the launch of the Energy Access Practitioner Network online survey, Niki addressed the need for comprehensive, well thought out strategies for financing clean energy. On the Forum’s last day of activities, Niki shared her experiences of how energy practitioners are pushing boundaries and creating opportunities that result in broader economic and development gains. Niki focused her discussion on the ways that women are gaining agency through control and usage of clean energy products, as well as challenges entailed in working with this demographic.
