Power to the People: Email your MP

One in five of our brothers and sisters around the world don’t have the electricity they need to power school, clinics, homes and businesses.

Local, renewable energy is a practical, affordable solution. It helps tackle climate change and poverty.

Your campaigning is already making a difference: thousands of you contacted former aid minister Nick Hurd, and he has backed our campaign to bring power to the people. It's a great start.

But less than £2 out of every £10 of aid spending on energy in developing countries is focused on the people who need it most – poor, remote or rural communities who otherwise risk being left behind.

Now it's time to get every MP to speak up for investment in renewable energy that reaches the poorest people. Please email your MP now.
