About EmPowered

A partnership for development with academic and commercial partners funded by a stage 1 award from Innovate UK, DFID, and The Reseach Council. The partnership is developing a new clean energy technology prototype supported by an integrated FinTech platform. We are installing our prototype into Living Laboratory in the off-grid village of Jamataka in Northern Botswana. The aim is to develop an investment-ready technology and business model which will attract private investment into the off-grid clean energy market in Africa
