About MicroEnergy Credits:
MicroEnergy Credits is a social enterprise which links microfinance institutions to the carbon markets when they lend for clean energy. MEC sells the carbon credits earned by replacing dirty fuels like kerosene, wood, coal and dung on the voluntary carbon markets and passes the carbon revenues along to its partner institutions. The institutions can then use the revenues to offset their costs of running the clean energy program or can pass the savings along to the client in the form of reduced interest rates, free battery replacements or other benefits. In 2008, MEC won the Global Social Venture Business Plan Competition for its innovative business model which makes accessing the carbon markets easy for MFIs.
