Renewable Energy, Sustainable Transitions, Intelligent Options.
Energy is a major challenge for Africa, and an essential “linchpin” in addressing poverty on the continent. More than a third of the 1.6 billion people that lack electricity access worldwide are located in Sub-Saharan Africa – 77% of the population. The use of wood and charcoal as energy source is responsible for killing more than 400 000 African women and children every year through indoor air pollution, and is wiping out the continent’s forests at a rate that is 4 times higher than anywhere else in the world.
Since 2001, Restio Energy has been at the forefront of tackling energy poverty in Africa – whether through creating the necessary enabling environments, developing innovative delivery models for sustainable energy access, or practically commercializing clean energy products. Restio Energy works with different technologies, people and contexts to develop appropriate solutions for improved modern energy access.
