Terrawatt Community News
Partnership in Global Green Markets Development

These past months, we have focused on amplifying our collective mission: to design new digital market frameworks required to massively scale next-generation, affordable and clean energy systems, capable of delivering the Paris Agreement and SDGs.


We are fully committed to help operationalize the priorities set by Heads of State at the International Solar Alliance (ISA) Summit in March and organize the contributions of key stakeholders—united behind a global and unprecedented effort to streamline contractual and regulatory frameworks, efficient guarantee tools, powered by a digital platform.


At Terrawatt, we recognize and appreciate that our accomplishments would not be possible without the expertise, involvement and contributions of our Community members, partners and supporters. Therefore, in current and future newsletters, we will be highlighting the outstanding work and programs of our partner network of changemakers.


In this edition, we are delighted to feature an inspiring story from Ms. Marie Ange Saraka Yao, Managing Director, GAVI Vaccine Alliance.
