This SocialBusiness.org top list of energy-efficient social innovations includes a range of both products and services. A few examples include BioLite, an energy company that provides emissions-free cooking tools as an alternative to toxic emissions. Others aren't products themselves like the home cook stove that BioLite offers, for instance, there's an infographic filled with statistics on energy efficiency at large as well as a website that reviews eco-friendly products in such a way to increase transparency but also bring more attention to the industry.

What is interesting here about these energy-efficient social innovations is the way that attention to both environmental and social purpose, making them adhere predominantly to the triple bottom line of people, planet and profit.
