Speaker for Urban Planning & Society at Gather 2018
TRINE makes it simple for people and institutions to invest in solar in emerging markets, such as sub-saharan Africa. An investment that means impact for people and the planet, while making a profit. TRINE has fast established itself as a key player in the industry, enabling access to electricity to hundreds of thousands of people with the vision of 66 milions in 5 years. Sam previously served as Director at Bosch Solar Energy North America that brought 100m USD of solar finance to the market. This is also where his passion lies - making solar energy bankable. In 2015 Sam was recognized as Sweden’s Social Entrepreneur of the Year and has since been featured on CNN, BBC News amongst others. TRINE has gone from strength to strength; awarded Social Impact Startup of the Year 2017 and partnering up with authorities in the industry, like UNDP and Sida.
