VIDEO | The thrilling potential for off-grid solar energy

Amar Inamdar | TEDGlobal 2017

In a bold talk about a true leapfrog moment, Amar Inamdar introduces us to proud owners of off-grid solar kits — and explains how this technology has the opportunity to meet two extraordinary goals: energy access for all and a low-carbon future.

“Every household a proud producer as well as consumer of energy,” Inamdar says. “That’s the democracy of energy.”
