The Access to Energy Institute aims to develop solar-based innovations for productive use across the off-grid solar energy sector for agriculture and business.
According to the FMO website, the Access to Energy Institute "intends to push solar energy companies to collaborate and to integrate the innovations A2EI develops, going beyond "just lighting. The Institute will "pool" resources to efficiently test and bring to market various appliances and products for improved productivity and lives."

ACCOUNTABILITY MECHANISM OF FMO
Communities who believe they will be negatively affected by a project funded by the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) may be able to file a complaint with the Independent Complaints Mechanism, which is the joint independent accountability mechanism of the Dutch Development Bank (FMO) and the German Investment Corporation (KfW) . A complaint can be filed in writing, by email, post, or online. The complaint can be filed in English or any other language of the complainant. The Independent Complaints Mechanism is comprised of a three-member Independent Expert Panel and it can provide either problem-solving, compliance review or both, in either order. Additional information about this accountability mechanism, including a guide and template for filing a complaint, can be found at: https://www.fmo.nl/independent-complaints-mechanism
