Posted on : Monday , 4th December 2017

 In a statement regarding the recent achievements, Thomas Gottschalk, the Mobisol founder and CEO, said: “We are proud to have reached this important milestone to electrify half a million people in rural East Africa. But it does not end here, our vision is to help make poverty history by providing sustainable and affordable energy solutions to 20 million people by 2023 and, ultimately to show the world that a cleaner, non-fossil fuel dependent future is possible.”

There are solutions out there which are sustainable and profitable while providing energy access to millions of people, empowering people and boosting economies while protecting the global climate, he added in the statement.

 

The Germany-based provider of decentralised solar solutions Mobisol’s installed capacity has reached 10MW, providing electricity to over 500,000 people in East Africa to date. With operations in Tanzania, Rwanda and Kenya, the firm is essential for providing rural communities with solar home systems and units to power small businesses such as phone charging and barber salons.

 

 In its fight against global climate change the company looks to offset 50,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent per year through smart rent-to-own solar systems. Mobisol provides solar solutions beyond lighting and focuses on the development and supply of large solar systems that power a range of energy-efficient household and productive use appliances. In a bid to target more customers the company is looking increase its offering around productive-use appliances targeting small-and-medium enterprises from 2018. As part of its commercial strategy, the firm plans to develop many business-to-business (B2B) partnerships and support solar providers in an additional nine countries through their software suite SolarHub. The system builds a digital foundation for pay-as-you-go (PAYG) business models. The company aims to bring partners up to speed fast and increase the scaling of off-grid.
