Globally around 1.1 billion people are still living without access to electricity.
The majority of these people are either in Sub Saharan African or developing Asia.
This lack of access to electricity restricts income generation, affects people’s health, and contributes to global deforestation and climate change.

Sub Saharan Africa has an abundance of renewable energy resources, including solar energy, wind power, hydro power, and biomass. By developing such energy sources countries can reduce their dependence on oil and natural gas, with their associated price fluctuations.

In isolated rural areas, electricity grid extensions are often not economical. Off‐grid renewable technologies provide a sustainable and cost‐effective alternative to the diesel generators that would be otherwise be deployed in such areas.

AGES is currently working with partners to establish modern renewable energy technologies in Sierra Leone, Cameroon and Nigeria.
