How We Work
blueEnergy views impact from a holistic perspective, where renewable energy, food security, and water, hygiene, and sanitation services are part of an integrated approach that must be used to achieve successful results and have a positive social impact. This approach includes extensive community participation, intensive and ongoing capacity building, appropriate financing mechanisms, and linking basic services to productive, adaptive, and appropriate uses are critical components of this ecosystem approach.
A complete eco-system level solution is complex and resource intensive, but necessary for success. blueEnergy’s long-term goal is to focus on solutions within a network of partners working together to deliver a comprehensive solution.
involving beneficiaries from the very start of project development and continuing throughout the project's implementation.
by providing skills and organizational strengthening with the aim of increasing autonomy and self-sufficiency so that beneficiaries can lead their own development.
"Today we are breaking ground on a very important project. Five years ago, we didn't even have a biodigester. blueEnergy has been a key partner, not only in the management of this project, but we are working together on access to water and sanitation, on the legalization of neighborhood water committees, and in the schools. blueEnergy is a very important partner, so I want to thank them publicly. We will continue to work together... because there is still a lot of work to do!"
