Hogan Lovells is working in partnership with Barefoot College to train women as solar engineers and bring light to people living in remote areas of the world
"Energy is very trendy for corporate investment", says Hogan Lovells Energy Partner Miguel Ángel Mateo Simón. “All the investments are being made in solar, probably because it's cheaper than a wind farm or any other investment in sustainable energy,” he comments.
But beyond trends, sustainable energy is the foundation to unlocking economic opportunity in underserved communities all over the world. "A reliable electricity source is essential," according to Energy Partner Amy Roma.
"The partnership between Barefoot College and Hogan Lovells is founded on a common view of how the world is and how the world needs to work,” says Energy Partner Alex Harrison.
Hogan Lovells three-year partnership with Barefoot College International seeks to bring light to 200,000 people in some of the most remote areas of the world.
“This is a nice way of being able to show to clients that we are innovative. We are interested in finding clients that say that's a great project, we’d like to work on that with you,” says Hogan Lovells CEO Steve Immelt.
