Learn about ENGIE Energy Access

With over 80% of Africans living without modern, affordable, safe and reliable energy, access to energy is a key activity for us in Africa.  ENGIE Energy Access is one of the first private companies to integrate modular SHS and mini-grids within a sustainable business model reinforced by a powerful digital platform. Innovation is present in all elements of the business model.
We believe that universal access to electricity is possible in the foreseeable future thanks to a smart combination of national grid extension, mini-grids and solar home systems, depending on the local characteristics of the energy demand.

ENGIE’s current positioning in the off-grid market is the result of the “access to energy” strategy initiated in 2018 with a strong focus on providing electricity for Sub-Saharan Africa’s rural and grid-deficient areas.  
In 2020, the strategy evolved into a full-fledged business with the successful integration of ENGIE’s solar home system companies, Fenix International and ENGIE Mobisol, and mini- grids provider, ENGIE PowerCorner, under one entity and one name – ENGIE Energy Access.

Our customer-centric approach and productive use solutions equip remote, off-grid households to break the cycle of energy poverty and build a brighter future.
