We are pioneers in clean energy. We saw that the connections between mobile connectivity, solar PV accessibility and financial technology offered the answer to solving the global challenge of connecting communities living far from the electricity grid.
We worked at the forefront of the solar revolution for several years – developing our skills in 3 leading off-grid companies: Fenix International, Mobisol and ENGIE PowerCorner.
In 2020, the ENGIE Group brought us together into one unified entity so that we can deliver even more transformation to global communities. And so ENGIE Energy Access was born.
We are now one of the leading Pay-As-You-Go (PAYGo) and mini-grids solutions provider in Africa, with a mission to deliver affordable, reliable and sustainable energy solutions and life-changing services with exceptional customer experience. The company is a result of the integration of Fenix International, ENGIE Mobisol and ENGIE PowerCorner; and develops innovative, off-grid solar solutions for homes, public services and businesses, enabling customers and distribution partners access to clean, affordable energy. The PAYGo solar home systems are financed through affordable installments from $0.19 per day and the mini-grids foster economic development by enabling electrical productive use and triggering business opportunities for entrepreneurs in rural communities.
With over 1,700 employees, operations in nine countries across Africa (Benin, Cote d’Ivoire, Kenya, Mozambique, Nigeria, Rwanda, Tanzania, Uganda and Zambia), over 1.3 million customers and more than 6.5 million lives impacted so far, ENGIE Energy Access aims to remain the leading clean energy company, serving millions of customers across Africa by 2025.
