Innovative Business Models for Africa

In a continent of 1 billion people 700 million people remain without access to power. Over the years, there have been many attempts to connect Africa to sources of energy, but the efforts have faced serious issues with expanding the grid to rural areas, bottlenecks around power generation, and long lead times that come with larger installations of power plants and grid extension. However there is new hope, a new model for providing access to electricity – It is called Pay as you go-technology (PAYGO), and with the right support and resources available, shows potential to trail blaze energy access into millions of households in Africa.
