Africa is leading the world’s transition to sustainable energy with decentralized renewable power. ZOLA’s power solutions make it possible for homes and businesses across Africa and anywhere in the world to generate, store and consume energy sustainably. The economic potential of businesses and communities worldwide will be unleashed with access to clean, reliable 24-hour power that that is assured by ZOLA’s leading technology. And economics isn’t the only thing that stands to gain — energy access significantly improves the health, education, financial inclusion, women’s empowerment and environmental outcomes of those who have it.
Access to the internet and the incredible educational resources available online are impossible without power. A fully charged mobile phone and access to television are critical to nurture curiosity and social connections. Reliable lighting means safety, security and more productive hours in the evening.
Access to power can dramatically improve women’s well-being as well as their financial and social status. The internet, mobile communications and television can play a key role in empowering women and girls by exposing them to new social norms and sources of information.
