We are thrilled to share big news : EarthSpark has won the OPEC Fund Annual Prize for Development.
You read that right! The Organization of Petroleum Exporting Countries has an affiliated development finance institution which has just selected EarthSpark’s work – including feminist electrification and our scale-up plans for 100% clean (read: fossil-fuel free) electricity systems – as THE work it wanted to highlight and support this year.

Are you feeling hopeful yet that the energy transition is possible?
Political, economic, and social systems are complex, of course, but when people (and what are institutions but the people within and around them?) decide to change course, we can.
Amidst all of the bad news this year, there are glimmers of great. Let us cultivate those glimmers of hope within ourselves and across all of the institutions we touch.
As we ride along together, finishing this year’s lap around the sun, let us think about our proximity to that star, about our interconnectedness to each other, and about our hopes and dreams for the years ahead.
