Because energy is vital and drives progress, it must be available to everyone. Yet access to energy is a daily challenge for 1.3 billion people who live without electricity. The Total Access to Energy program, introduced in 2010, acts as an incubator to identify and test solutions that improve access to energy for the most disadvantaged communities. Awango by Total, the program’s first large-scale achievement, is a business response to a social issue. The range of modern, reliable, affordable solar solutions provides lighting and recharging of small electrical appliances like mobile telephones.
Its business model ensures the sustainability and accessibility of the solutions and product reliability. It is built on innovative partnerships with development experts, NGOs, commercial players and manufacturers. Awango by Total is a range of solutions designed to create economic and social value.
