Powering Off-grid Communities with Clean Energy

“In Africa there are 600 million people without access to clean energy or power. 70% of this demand will be carried by renewables. Our vision is to see more than 200 million people having access to clean energy in the next 15-20 years… We hope to take our experiences from the African market/region to the global economy.”, says co-founder and team lead, Leroy T. Nyangani.

Founded in 2019, NeedEnergy’s AI-based technology brings intelligent insights to micro-grid operators. They developed Zimbabwe’s first smart grid for LP gas, currently work on renewables-based pilot projects for powering off-grid African communities. Moreover, they have succeeded in taking their technical know-how global with the application they are developing for an Australian project.
