Distributed Power Africa (DPA), a subsidiary of Econet Wireless Global, and EDF (Électicité De France) a world leading electricity company,  have signed partnership cooperation agreement to jointly develop Commercial and Industrial (C&I) and hybrid energy solutions to the African market.

The partnership will focus on the development of distributed-energy solutions based on solar panels associated with energy back-up systems such as batteries. The two companies plan to deploy their solutions by setting up power businesses in sub-Saharan Africa, which will initially include South Africa, Ivory Coast and Nigeria, with the intention to expand into other key markets.

The intention is also to accelerate the deployment and roll-out of Green energy across Africa, with EDF acting as a technology partner for DPA projects in Africa. Distributed Power Africa will leverage EDF’s capabilities and vast experience in renewable energy and utilize these solutions to develop and grow their pipeline in Africa.
