Dear Blue Blue,

There have been two refrains we’ve heard during our near 3-year journey to the front-lines of off-grid energy provision. Help us grow our businesses from entrepreneurs and show the world what we are doing already from villagers themselves. So this week I’m delighted to promote two highly relevant competitions. Firstly, ECREEE and IRENA have a deadline of March 25 for applications to their ECOWAS  Renewable Energy Entrepreneurship Support Facility. Secondly we are launching our own Smart Villages Photography Competition, with a deadline of April 30, looking for your visions of how off-grid renewable energy access is making a real difference already. Looking forward to your entries to both.
