“Changing Rural Life Forever” is an initiative of RVE.SOL – Soluçoes de Energia Rural Lda. We are a “social entrepreneurship for profit”.
Through “Changing Rural Life Forever”, we are applying sustainable technology to the benefit of the world’s poorest in a way that creates financial benefits or profit for our investors, life changing impetus and measurable social impact for the people who use our solutions and measurable positive environmental impact on the planet. This is also known as the “triple bottom line”.
Formed out of the belief that everyone has a basic human right to sustainable energy and fresh water, “Changing Rural Life Forever” is about implementing first world, renewable energy technologies within locally sustainable community business models to eradicate poverty. To this end we have developed the Rural Village Energy hub or RVE.
