Little Sun, big impact.
Little Sun is a global project and a social business. What started as a humble idea to create a small, portable solar lamp for people without electricity in Ethiopia is now an innovative business model that has changed over a million lives through the awesome power of the sun. Little Sun strengthens communities from the inside by creating local distribution routes and hubs. Local Little Sun sales points create jobs and profitable local businesses that empower young entrepreneurs. Their beautiful, high quality products sold on the grid enable their local partners to sell the same product off of the grid at a fair, locally affordable price. Little Sun is a company with a conscience, committed to beautiful, design-driven products with an ambitious vision for the future of our planet.
Little Sun's artist-designed, premium solar products and their social business model benefit communities without electricity worldwide and bring the power of the sun to the palm of your hand. Founded in 2012 by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen and launched at London’s Tate Modern, Little Sun believes that the power of sustainable energy transforms lives, especially for those 1.1 billion of us who live without access to the grid.
