Africa GreenTec one of the top 100 international start-ups

Africa GreenTec is one of the top 100 international start-ups of the Start-Up Energy Transition (SET) competition 2018. In a recent interview on the SET platform, Jesse Pielke, Head of Operations at Africa Green Tec, gives some insights about the current successes and further developments.

"We have recently finished setting up our 12th plant in Mali. We have been actively developing our product and service for 2 years now and feel that we are developing at a rapid pace. We have hired around 50 employees locally in Mali alone and are steadily expanding our team. Knowledge transfer and enabling our team through training and workshops have been a key success factor. Through these training sessions, our local team finished setting up a power plant without any help from German engineers. This is a major milestone on our way to scaling at full capacity. […]

We will keep adding more Solartainer® to our portfolio. In 3 years, we want to have at least 50 Solartainer up and running. Where necessary we want to add satellite-systems to our power plants to monitor them and to provide stable internet access to our customers. Furthermore, we are looking to implement professional grade water purification systems in our Solartainer to sell clean drinking water to fair prices. Applying these 3 business models to all our plants will keep us more busy for this timeframe."
