A next generation utility, transforming lives and unlocking potential

About

Why we exist

We started Bboxx to tackle a major global problem: energy poverty. Currently, 759 million people live without access to energy, of which 570 million are in Africa. An additional 840 million people are connected to an unreliable grid.

Over a decade ago, our three co-founders began exploring energy solutions that would provide electricity and other utilities to the millions without them.

They saw that access to reliable electricity is what the world needs to end poverty as a whole.

So together, they developed a clean, affordable and reliable solution which truly unlocks potential and transforms lives.

Bboxx is the result.

How do we solve it

We design, manufacture, distribute and finance decentralised energy solutions.

We are a vertically integrated business and our business model is based: our physical (distribution network) and digital (Bboxx Pulse) highways, our bold technology (hardware and software), and our partnerships.

Our Bboxx Pulse® platform enables next generation utility businesses to scale and reach their customers that are dispersed across remote locations.

We are expanding and scaling by forging strategic partnerships with governments and world-class corporates.

Bboxx Pulse® delivers energy access in a scalable and distributed model to individuals, businesses and communities.

We have been operating in Togo since 2017, after being awarded a tender to install solar home systems across the country, largely in rural areas.

This forms part of the Togo Government’s national electrification strategy, the “CIZO” initiative – which means lighting up in the local “Guin” language.
