Nuru Energy

2014

Overview

Currently operating in India and East Africa, Nuru Energy was seed-funded in 2008 and has an enduring commitment to solving the global problem of energy poverty, which affects over 2 billion people worldwide. Nuru Energy has developed a one-of-a-kind robust and simple-to-use, off-grid recharging platform, the Nuru POWERCycle™ pedal generator. The POWERCycle™ provides reliable clean, sustainable power anytime, anywhere and is hundreds of times more efficient than current solar-based solutions at a fraction of the cost. Student intern Therese Miranda-Blackney formulated a social media strategy and operational improvements for Nuru.
