ImpactPPA and Earth Day Network Launch Initiative to Install 50 Clean Energy Projects by 2020
MANHATTAN BEACH, CA, April 20, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Decentralized renewable energy company ImpactPPA and Earth Day Network today announced an initiative to install clean energy systems at 50 facilities by 2020. The “50 by 50” initiative will focus on providing hybrid wind and solar installations to schools, healthcare centers, and other facilities whose work could be greatly enhanced by access to reliable energy. ImpactPPA is now accepting submissions for projects to email@example.com.
The first installation will be at Edna Adan Hospital in Hargeisa, Somaliland. Through this effort, ImpactPPA will install a hybrid wind and solar system to provide affordable and reliable energy, allowing money currently spent acquiring fuel to be channeled directly into patient care. This project aligns with the United Nations Sustainable Energy for All initiative, which seeks to provide universal access to sustainable energy by 2030 with a focus on healthcare centers as the first priority. This goal is especially important in regions like sub-Saharan Africa, where just 28 percent of healthcare facilities report having reliable access to electricity.
“We hope that the success of our first project with ImpactPPA will become a launchpad for continuing our work together and identifying other worthy projects and partners around the globe,” said Kathleen Rogers, President of Earth Day Network. “This initiative will not only showcase an emergent technology but also have a real impact on people who need clean energy.”
“Improving the world’s access to clean energy is a goal that we share with Earth Day Network, and this partnership moves us closer to balancing inequality in our global energy systems,” said Dan Bates, CEO of ImpactPPA. “We look forward to identifying new opportunities to deploy ImpactPPA’s technology globally through the 50 by 50 initiative.”
ImpactPPA will be recognized at Earth Day Network’s Climate Leadership Gala for its work with the Edna Adan Hospital in Washington D.C. on May 8, 2018. The annual event gathers the world’s most distinguished green economy leaders and celebrates achievements leading the path to a post-carbon future.
ImpactPPA is a blockchain platform built to disrupt renewable energy finance and accelerate global energy production. ImpactPPA’s platform and tokenized model allows communities to rapidly fund and deploy clean energy solutions by untethering traditionally expensive and inefficient structures for energy financing.
