Bono with Yosef Abramowitz in Rwanda

Nominated three times for the Nobel Peace Prize, Abramowitz heads Energiya Global Capital, an impact investment platform that provides healthy returns to investors while advancing the environmental and humanitarian goals of providing affordable green power to underserved populations as a fundamental human right.

During his talk, Abramowitz will explain how moving from philanthropy to investing provides triple and quadruple bottom lines and can scale made-in-Israel solutions on a global scale.

An American-Israeli human rights activist, educator and entrepreneur Abramowitz is recognized as one of the pioneers of the solar energy industry in both Israel and East Africa. Named by CNN as one of the six top global “Green Pioneers”, by PV Tech as “one of the most inspiring solar CEOs” worldwide, and as Person of the Year by the Israel National Business and Energy Conference, Abramowitz is co-founder of the Arava Power Company, Israel’s leading solar developer. In 2015, he was nominated for the Nobel Prize based on Gigawatt Global’s work with the Rwandan solar field project, which now provides 6% of the country’s power.
