EDF-Energy Generation equips about 100 West African women, Togolese included, with tools to foster solar entrepreneurship

(Togo First) - Signed about a year ago, the partnership between French energy firm EDF and Lomé-based pan-African company Energy Generation has yielded its first results.

Concretely, EDF taught, under a program named “Women and Solar Entrepreneurship,” about a hundred women from Togo, Ghana and Côte d’Ivoire, techniques related to the installation and maintenance of off-grid solar systems. “The program aimed for these women to become key contributors of energy transition in their respective countries, said Astria Fataki, President of Energy Generation as the partnership was being signed.  

Founded in 2016, Energy Generation is involved in projects to boost electrification in rural areas across sub-Saharan Africa. Besides the Women and Solar Entrepreneurship program, it benefits from EDF’s support for the EDF Pulse Africa Awards which rewards African startups that really play a role in energy development across the continent.
