THE LIVES OF THE ONES THAT NEED IT MOST
Our goal as the foundation Energy For Refugees (EfR) is to alleviate energy poverty of people seeking asylum and shelter by using sustainable energy technologies. The benefits for people living in refugee camps are immediate: they can sleep feeling safe, their children have the lights on at night so they can keep up with their education, and they are able to call their families and loved ones to let them know they are on their way to a better, safer life.
Next to that, we aim to reduce the dependency of refugee camps on external parties in order to make the camps more autonomous while engaging the camp residents in helping to set up the systems.
Last but not least, this endeavour leads to a reduction in CO2 emissions of refugee camps which are less dependent on the use of diesel generators.
Each year we plan and execute our yearly project during the summer period. Unfortunately, in 2020 our project in Nigeria had to be canceled because of the corona crisis. Happily, we are now back this year with a new, highly-potential project! Follow the link below to know what we're up to this year!
In the past years, we have worked on different projects: first in Lesvos in Greece, then in Moriaanother in the Paso Libre, Mexico and finally in the Katsikas camp again in Greece.

Delftse Hout - 9th June
Energy for Refugees, in collaboration with Delft Sustainable Energy Association (DSEA), hosted an event for their crowdfunding campaign. Along with multiple activities and tasty food, our team managed to organise a fun-filled day in order to accomplish their goal; an autonomous power system for a Syrian refugee school in Lebanon.
