We are all #ConnectedByTheSun

What started as a humble idea to create a small, portable solar lamp for people without electricity in Ethiopia is now a global project that has changed over two million lives through the awesome power of the sun.

Launched in 2012 by artist Olafur Eliasson and engineer Frederik Ottesen at London’s Tate Modern, Little Sun’s social business brings clean, reliable, affordable energy to the 1.1 billion people in the world living without electricity while raising awareness for energy access and climate action worldwide

Our premium solar products are for everyone. Each time you buy a Little Sun, we deliver one to someone living off-the-grid at a much lower, locally affordable price. On the ground, mainly in Sub-Saharan Africa, we work with local entrepreneurs to create local jobs and to bring the power of the sun to everyone.

In 2017, Olafur Eliasson launched the Little Sun Foundation, as an extension to the social business. The Foundation brings light to those beyond the reach of our entrepreneurial distribution channels, especially school children, refugees and people affected by natural disaster.
