Statkraft to Support Solar in Africa to Address Energy Poverty

European renewable energy developer Statkraft is partnering with the international development charity SolarAid to address energy poverty through solar power in sub-Saharan Africa over the next three years.

Statkraft will give $2.7 million in cash and equipment in that time to support SolarAid’s work. The donations will go towards providing clean, safe and simple solar lighting in an effort to ensure that by 2030 all homes, schools and clinics have energy access in the region.
