Energise Africa

Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office

Energise Africa is a crowdfunding platform raising investment in enterprises delivering household solar systems in Sub-Saharan Africa, by connecting them with ethical retail investors in the UK. It was established by the FCDO with additional support from Virgin Unite, working with UK charity Energy4Impact. Since launching Energise Africa in 2017 via the Ethex and Lendahand joint venture, the partnership has built an investor community of more than 4,200 crowd-investors, raised over £25 million for distributed renewable energy companies, and enabled more than 600,000 people in Sub-Saharan Africa to access life-changing clean, affordable electricity.
