Katherine Lucey

The founder and Chief Executive Officer of Solar Sister, Katherine Lucey originally worked in the banking sector for 20 years before leaving it behind to dedicate herself to helping alleviate the energy poverty that affects such a large section of the world’s population. Solar Sister is aiming to eradicate energy poverty in Africa and at the same time provide employment and empowerment for women in these communities. A women-centred sales network has been set up as a way to help women economically, and to bring clean energy to rural remote parts of Africa.
