Chris Baker-Brian and his company BBOXX are the latest British business to show their support for Heathrow expansion in our case study series. BBOXX help provide solar energy to 35 developing countries – using Heathrow to get to most of them.
Nearly a third of the global population has no access to electricity.
But Chris Baker-Brian is helping change this with BBOXX: the briefcase-sized battery box that’s providing reliable solar energy in 35 developing countries.
From the Congo to Colombia, BBOXX powers phones, homes, schools and hospitals, changing the lives of some 205,000 people.
Chris wants to make that 20 million.
But to do it, he needs more direct flights, to more emerging markets.
Only an expanded Heathrow is able to take him there. And he isn’t alone in standing to benefit.
Expansion at Heathrow will create up to £211 billion for the UK economy, and up to 180,000 jobs.
Only when Chris can connect to the developing world can he get the developing world connected.
He knows exactly what he needs to keep his growth on-grid.
And that includes an expanded Heathrow.
