TreeHugger readers picked Sungevity as the Best Energy Industry Innovator (and there's lots to congratulate Sungevity for) but when it comes to a truly interesting and innovative business model Bangalore-based Simpa Networks really stands out.

Using a pay-as-you-go model combined with topping up accounts via mobile phone, Simpa is starting to provide clean electricity to some of the world's poorest people, perhaps the first electricity they've ever had.
