Powered by waste

Shift is a revolutionary non-profit energy initiative that converts animal waste into reliable, inexpensive energy for those who need it.

Waste is a massive untapped resource

The world is in need of a better, more reliable and accessible way to generate energy for those who lack it.

16% of the world’s population still does not have access to electricity

38% of the world’s population uses unsafe energy, resulting in 3.5 million deaths every year

How Shift works


Waste is stored in an oxygen-free concrete dome


Bacteria then breaks down fecal waste into usable biogas over time


The clean gas is then piped to homes in remote villages


Homes will be able to use this energy for cooking and electricity, many of them for the very first time

By 2020, scale to 50 energy domes across two continents

Progress so far
