How do enterprises create social impact through energy provision?

The enterprises we surveyed fell into two major camps:

Depth / Holistic Impact Focused

Enterprises focused on holistic impact, who felt that they needed to provide more services to less people, because without training and/or community development, target beneficiaries won’t be able to truly take advantage of energy access and/or maintain installations such as community based power plants.

Scope / Number Reached Focused

Enterprises primarily focused on the number of people reached, who felt that their product or service was intrinsically valuable enough that they could do the most good by getting their product to as many people as possible.
