GOGLA and IKEA Foundation announce transformative Scaling PURE partnership at the SAFDE

GOGLA, the global association for the off-grid solar energy industry, and the IKEA Foundation are delighted to announce a strategic partnership to scale the productive use of renewable energy (PURE) across Asia and Africa. The partnership provides GOGLA with funding of EUR 4 million over four years to help the off-grid solar sector to advance solar PURE technologies that can help to modernise agriculture, improve food and water security, power micro, small and medium-sized enterprises (MSMEs) and electrify health infrastructure.


IKEA Foundation has also announced its endorsement of the GOGLA ‘Power 1 Billion Lives’ UN Energy Compact, joining over 100 other organisations behind the shared vision of bringing renewable energy to underserved communities. With clear calls to action and a roadmap for all stakeholders, the ‘Power 1 Billion Lives’ Energy Compact is designed to help the off-grid solar sector scale its impact and rapidly provide green, modern energy to 1 billion people by 2030, reaching 190 million with PURE technologies.
