InfraCo Africa Invests US$15 million in Bboxx

To date, Bboxx has successfully delivered clean energy solutions for over 2.5 million people globally, with substantial operations in countries including Rwanda, Kenya, Togo, Nigeria, and the Democratic Republic of Congo. This investment will enable Bboxx’s acceleration in existing and new markets across sub-Saharan Africa to provide clean energy solutions to millions of people in the region.

Bboxx’s systems run on its comprehensive management platform Bboxx Pulse®, enabling clean energy access to be scaled to places previously considered too expensive or difficult to reach via traditional grid infrastructure.

InfraCo Africa has a strong track record in the off-grid solar space, with mini-grid initiatives in Uganda, Sierra Leone and Kenya and the company also supports solar-powered irrigation in Senegal. This agreement with Bboxx marks the company’s first investment in the SHS space, in line with InfraCo Africa’s desire to broaden access to clean energy across rural areas and communities using alternative models.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
