Building an African Market: Solar Energy Entrepreneurs on the Rise

Building an African Market: Solar Energy Entrepreneurs on the Rise

Charities' early efforts to distribute clean energy technologies in Africa met with little success. Their use of donor funding to heavily subsidise products such as solar lighting kits would generally fulfil a programme's short-term targets, but in the long run the expertise and equipment needed to maintain the systems failed to be adequately developed or provided. Crucially, no new systems beyond a programme's target would appear in the area. But a new wave of investors and social enterprises has sprung up in the last decade, and they are increasing the availability of products tailored to off-grid domestic energy customers in Africa.

IEEE Smart Village – Advancing Technology for All of Humanity

IEEE Smart Village – Advancing Technology for All of Humanity

Just a year before the 2010 earthquake in the Caribbean nation of Haiti, IEEE members formed the Community Solutions Initiative working group (CSI) under the parent program Humanitarian Technology Challenge (HTC) pilot of 2008-10.  Aimed at making a major impact on reducing world poverty through new technology enterprises growing sustainable infrastructure, human empowerment and community prosperity, CSI teamed up with private industry to design, build and deliver a rapid deployment energy source for off-grid communities.  The problem: Many charitable efforts around the globe have fielded personal-use home solar products of various capacities, but revisiting these systems shortly after deployment often finds them either in disarray or missing altogether due to theft.  Only by breaking the conventional mold of charitable contributions could CSI’s lofty goals be realized.  This new business model had to target the very causes of energy poverty which includes lack of opportunity, education and market accessibility.
