RENEWVIA ENERGY AFRICA
With two subsidiaries in Kenya and Nigeria, Renewvia has a large and growing presence in key markets across Africa, where the company builds, installs and operates minigrids: standalone power system that operate autonomously from a country’s main power supply. Our Rural Microgrid Development and Operation Model is designed to scale reliable power in areas that are either unserved by conventional utilities, or ineligible for grid extension. We construct standalone and hybrid solar photovoltaic and battery-powered plants that can accommodate additional capacity from wind or other sources of electricity.
Minigrids do not just bring reliable, clean electricity to communities for the first time, they transform lives. Suddenly, where there was no electricity or light, children study at night, businesses expand and buy new appliances, and new business ideas come to life. Simply, reliable electricity is a foundational element for a community to lift itself up and achieve economic growth.
MINIGRID EXPANSION IN KALOBEYEI SETTLEMENT
In addition to Renewvia's effort to power remote areas with minigrid installations, the market for C&I solar in Africa is growing as well. Many big name businesses are looking for ways to cut power costs and reduce their carbon footprint. Renewvia has completed a handful of projects over the past few years with plans to continue to grow and establish a presence in this sector.
