End Poverty Day


Poverty in Kenya Africa

Consider this dark scenario right now: over 95% of people without access to modern energy live in Sub-Saharan Africa, or developing Asia. 1.3 billion have no access to electricity and even worse – 3.6 billion have no access to communication, education and healthcare. Can you imagine living that way?

Now consider this much brighter scenario: powered by private investment, transformative partnerships, collaboration with synergistic companies, foundations and non-profits, mobile network operators and entrepreneurs, the economies of these developing regions can grow dynamically. The driving force: electrification powers connectivity. Connectivity powers knowledge. Knowledge powers social and economic progress.

Access to communication, education, healthcare and the ability to earn a decent living can bring hundreds of millions of new consumers into the global marketplace, promoting prosperity around the world. People in developing countries will have a new and more optimistic norm of interaction, leading to new possibilities and outcomes.

Both of these scenarios are possible. However, the one that will occur will be decided primarily on two important factors: the unwavering optimism and unrelenting determination of organizations to come together and invest in the world’s poorest markets.

Poverty in SE Asia (India) Roughly 65 million Indians live in slums. Compare for example Thailand’s entire population adds up to 65 million.


Powerstorm Energy Storage Solutions (ESS) sees promise, where others see only problems. Seeing what is has directed our focus on developing renewable solar energy solutions for off-grid and rural countries. Our vision is that ALL people should have access to electricity and the opportunity to escape energy poverty and improve their lives. We do this with a wide variety of products and platforms.


Our main product, zeroXess, provides a complete solar home energy storage solution that provides electricity, lighting and Internet connectivity. This cutting-edge technology empowers users to utilize reliable electricity in rural, off-grid areas. Better described as a platform, zeroXess boasts a compact, lightweight body for convenient portability and a large, easy to read 10” screen, making it easy to detect, control and monitor, light, communication, weather, power and indoor threats. The 60-watt solar panel powers a long-lasting, cobalt-free lithium-ion battery (a FIRST in their industry) that supports six USB ports, powering phone and other connected devices and four LED fixtures.


zeroXess will eliminate the use of kerosene lamps, which release toxic fumes inside the homes of rural communities, killing millions of people each year. The six LED fixtures will allow children to study after the sun goes down, providing universal education. zeroXess will also facilitate the delivery of basic health services; boost economic growth by enabling mobile money and micro finance; allow farmers to stay abreast of local services; and accelerate critical communication between affected populations and the international community.

Powerstorm ESS aggressively seeks to implement immediate accessibility to the following immediate areas:

  • e-Learning
  • m-Health
  • Clean cooking
  • Indoor air quality sensing


By stimulating this kind of development, organizations with imagination and true vision can dramatically improve the lives of billions of people and help create a more stable, prosperous and safe world.


We need to focus on improving the conditions of people everywhere. United Nations Secretary General Kofi Annan reminded us of this as he accepted the 2001 Nobel Peace prize: “Today’s real borders are not between nations, but between powerful and powerless, free and fettered, privileged and humiliated. We must focus, as never before, on improving the conditions of the individual men and women who give the state, or nation its richness and character, recognizing that saving one life is to save humanity itself.”

To that end, our company’s goal is to develop renewable solar energy solutions that create a new bond between people everywhere, a new link that did not exist before. If we meet this test, we respond to the challenge put forth by Kofi Annan, which results in:

  • Power for ALL people
  • Saving lives
  • Ending child labor
  • Reactivating hope


Today we are crossing a threshold of access. What was once available only to the rich, is now becoming available to the poorest.

Powerstorm ESS believes that their xeroXess technology along with the involvement of the Western World, utilizing smart leadership, as well as the creation of transformative partnerships and joint ventures, we can fast-forward the growth of entrepreneurship ownership. To that end, we embrace the support and backing of any and all organizations who prove imaginative and daring enough to seize new opportunities to empower the powerless and end poverty.

Powerstorm ESS welcomes strategic, transformational partnerships with mobile network operators, non-profit organizations, corporations and foundations to help further their business and humanitarian efforts. This End Poverty Day, 2016 Powerstorm ESS urges everyone to join us and “Let’s not wait for change…let’s drive it!”
