Equatorial Power brings together a consolidated team with a strong track record in renewable energy access. The team has pioneered off-grid electrification and productive use in the region and continues in this path, with substantial business model innovation focused around closing the agro-processing value gap across rural Africa.

Our business model integrates the delivery of productive energy with water purification, agro-processing services, business incubation and e-mobility; for a truly holistic approach centred around the customer and enabled by the latest technology. We are pioneering “mini-grids 2.0” and working to validate a productive mini-grid asset class. With in-house project development, construction and operational capacity, we aim to leverage our local and international strategic corporate partnerships to scale up our holistic, distributed utility model and accelerate rural service delivery across many more countries.
