Area Officer

Posted By on Monday, July 27, 2015

Worldwide, about 1.5 billion people at the Base-of-the-Pyramid (BoP) are not connected to the electricity grid and lack a stable energy supply for their daily needs. For many BoP communities, nighttime means darkness and brings commercial and social activities to a halt. To meet their growing demand for energy, most BoP households rely on kerosene, diesel generators, charcoal and dry cell batteries. Such unsustainable alternatives can consume up to 40% of their income and is detrimental to their health, safety and their local environment. SOLARKIOSK Rwanda Ltd., a subsidiary company of the German firm Solarkiosk AG, is the energy gateway to untapped markets at the Base-of-the-Pyramid (BoP). It has developed an award winning technology intertwined with an award winning inclusive business model offering sustainable energy products, services and high quality fast moving consumer goods to BoP customers.

SOLARKIOSK Rwanda Ltd. distinguishes itself through its lean hierarchies, a high degree of personal responsibility, quick decision-making, cordial teamwork, and a highly dynamic and innovative business environment. We are currently active in six African countries and entering a phase of strategic growth.
