Dear Blue Blue,

I know it’s a hackneyed old word that many of you would like to consign to history along with synergy and management speak from the 90s. However, my main thought from SE4ALL last week in Brooklyn was that a holistic approach to achieving energy access for all is the only way forward. This thought was born out of the reaction without fail from everyone our team met to the Smart Villages Initiative. “You’re the only ones taking a holistic approach. Others are still thinking in silos” was a constant refrain. Gratifying to hear and I’m sure we’re not the only ones, but it appears the idea of a “Smart Village” that looks at all delivery methods of energy access and its dividends does have a universal appeal. More reflections next week, but I leave you with a picture one of the true stars of the forum - Martin Kariongi, Community Leader of Terrat “Smart Village” in Tanzania and encourage you to listen to his story on our website.
