Schneider Electric, a global specialist in energy management with operations in more than 100 countries, has an ambitious agenda aimed at increasing access to clean, reliable and affordable energy.

The company has most notably set up a so-called Business, Innovation & People at the Base of the Pyramid program (BipBop), which addresses three key issues to provide sustainable access to electricity: the lack of appropriate equipment through the development of an adequate offer; the lack of financial resources available for innovative energy entrepreneurs through funding; and the skills and expertise shortage through technical and business training.

This WBCSD case study introduces BipBoP’s work, and provides examples of its application in practice.
