The Issue: What Is Energy Poverty?

Energy poverty is lack of access to modern energy services. It is also defined as households energy costs above 10% of disposable income. According to the Energy Poverty Action initiative of the World Economic Forum, "Access to energy is fundamental to improving quality of life and is a key imperative for economic development. In the developing world, energy poverty is still rife. Nearly 1.6 billion people still have no access to electricity."

In Taiwan, there are 4,036 extreme poor and low-income families. Their monthly rent is NT$200- NT$600, but their electricity bill is NT$800- NT$2,000. So they try not to turn on the lights or AC. The result is that their children can only study in the darkness; their houses are messy and dirty with poor ventilation.


The Solution

We aim to improve life of Taiwan’s urban poor.


The Result

Our Progress

DOMI started this project in Taipei in the end of 2015. As each month passes, we discover that more and more families need help on solving energy poverty. We hope to expand the scale of this project to the whole country and to eliminate energy poverty for 4,036 extreme poor families in Taiwan by the end of 2016.
