AFRICANS
STILL LIVE

WITHOUT
ELECTRICITY.

Thousands of remote African villages lack access to affordable, secure and clean energy & energy services.

In 2012, 88 % of the people who lacked electricity in rural areas lived in Sub-Saharan Africa and South East Asia. Especially rural areas in Sub-Saharan Africa are still struggling to gain access to electricity.
Approximately 87 % of the people without electricity live in rural areas characterised by remoteness and sparse population density, where the extension of national grids is often technically difficult, costly and inefficient.
For over 600 million Africans, life without electricity isn’t simply a rare inconvenience, it can be life-threatening.

LEARN HOW ENERGY SAVES LIVES

It's difficult to imagine life without access to clean, reliable energy.

It's even harder to survive.
Here's a glimpse:
  • Illiteracy

    Children without access to electricity study less, drop out of school earlier and more frequently, and enjoy fewer opportunities as adults.

  • Poverty

    Without access to electricity, opportunities to earn income are scarce. Kerosene, firewood and phone-charging are more expensive than clean energy.

  • Illness

    Regular inhalation of kerosene smoke is associated with lung disease, compromised immunity, and dementia, as well as poorer overall health.

  • Injury & Death

    Households relying on kerosene experience more injuries and deaths from kerosene-related illness, fire and accidental poisoning.

  • Opportunity Cost

    Without electricity, Africans lose millions of hours daily walking miles to and from adjacent towns to buy kerosene and charge devices.

  • Waste

    Without refrigeration, tons of meat and produce are wasted each day in rural Africa, creating food insecurity and worsening poverty.

  • Isolation

    Poorly lit communuties feel less secure at night, especially for women, turning sundown into a daily curfew for many residents of remote villages.

  • Flight

    The financial, medical, and social burdens of life without electricity compel millions to abandon villages in search of opportunities elsewhere.

Renewable energy is the solution.

NBXSOLAR offers an affordable range of renewable energy solutions designed specifically to meet the needs of remote African villages.

We work extensively with rural community residents to design scalable, off-grid solutions — ranging from inexpensive, modular pico-lighting systems to specialized industrial mini-grids — that address unique contraints and meet energy goals. NBXSOLAR’s local presence also ensures that we can respond quickly to emerging energy needs.
As improving technology and lower hardware costs continue to reduce financial and technical barriers to renewable energy, off-grid systems are helping millions of Africans to reduce poverty, improve health care access. increase public safety, and more.
