Are you ready for the next generation energy solution?

CLEAN 24 HOUR
POWER ANYWHERE

ZOLA’s roots began in and around the Serengeti in Tanzania, where our founders observed that both off grid and on grid communities rely on dirty, expensive and hard to manage forms of energy including diesel, kerosene and lead acid batteries. No primary, integrated power source existed, it was purely inefficient backup systems, an impediment to these communities achieving their full social and economic potential. Our mission to solve one of the world’s great problems, energy inequality, one that afflicts over 2 billion people and hundreds of millions of businesses globally was born.

Over a decade ago we started by installing smart, connected devices (lithium ion batteries and solar) that powered basic energy needs such as lighting for rural communities. Our theory that thousands of networked, connected devices will drive the energy transition in emerging markets holds true today.

ZOLA has developed the world’s first enterprise technology platform, purpose built for the energy access markets, combining the power of a family of products all controlled by one operating system, ZOLA Vision. 

Today, ZOLA Electric is the leading emerging market energy technology company, delivering community level electrification through its technology platform. We’ve expanded from Tanzania to now proudly providing energy access to 10 countries across 4 continents, delivering affordable, reliable and clean energy to over 2 million people and countless schools, clinics, and businesses. We are on our way to eradicating energy inequality, and we will not stop until our mission is complete
