Engie and Eib Partner on Off-Grid Solar Scheme in Uganda
By Theresa Smith
ENGIE, through its solar home systems company Fenix International, will be scaling up off-grid solar technology deployment with the European Investment Bank (EIB) providing the critical funding.
EIB’s involvement addresses the biggest barrier faced by 80% of Ugandans without access to electricity – solving the last mile challenge of families unable to afford the initial upfront cost of electricity for the home.
