Smart Energy Solutions

Overall: US $20m
EAIF: US$ 20m

The company works across Africa, providing power where there is none, where it is not reliable or where short term additional capacity is required. SES generators are used mainly by governments, utilities and mining and extraction companies. Mobile energy is frequently needed after natural disasters and in post conflict countries. Mobile energy often has an immediate humanitarian function and helps people and economies recover more quickly from crisis than would otherwise be the case.
