Our Mission

At NSE, we believe renewable energy is a key resource in providing power to the African continent. Considering only a nominal percentage of Africa’s population has access to power, we believe our solutions can make a meaningful impact to improve the lives of millions of people across Africa. Our mission is to do just that.

Our Vision

Africa faces some very complex energy problems. Our vision is to solve some of these problems through accelerating the adoption of renewable energy through a distributed energy approach. Our team is committed in every aspect of achieving this.
