Close to 600 million people in Africa live without access to electricity, Sub-Saharan Africa’s share of the global population without access is over 75%. In Ghana there are still roughly 5 million people that live in the dark or use dangerous, polluting, and inefficient means to light their homes such as generators, kerosene, or flashlights.
Newer and ever-improving power technologies are creating an exciting leapfrog opportunity to increase remote access to power with clean, affordable, and scalable off-grid or mini-grid solutions.
Access to electricity has a significant ripple effect improving economic productivity, healthcare quality, education, connectivity, and security.
The Israeli cleantech industry has been known worldwide as a vibrant source of new ideas and creatively effective solutions aimed at solving these issues.
New Israeli startups are created almost on a daily basis in fields like renewable energy, energy efficiency, energy delivery, and storage.
This Webinar, a collaboration of the Israeli Trade Missions in Kenya and Ghana and the Israel Export Institute aims to explore some of the challenges in powering remote off-grid populations in SSA, as well as to present some exciting technologies as potential solutions.
