This web portal provides access to an archive of 'grey literature' to promote collective learning and empowerment for vulnerable and marginalised people, helping them to claim their rights and improve their lives. It emphasises participatory approaches, methods, tools, principles and concepts already being practised on the ground.
The website is aimed at community-based organisations, and aims to create a platform where practitioners working on similar themes can share knowledge. The website publishes related documents, videos, an events page and a forum where members can post questions and start discussions on issues such as monitoring and evaluation and implementation strategies.

The website offers information on projects arranged by country and project theme, as well as relevant news and events. It also publishes extensive resources including links to publications, training materials and a gallery with audiovisual resources.

The conferences are held annually but the organisation also holds more frequent workshops and symposia on timely topics.

Its flagship publication Renewables Global Status Report is updated every year.
