Bringing affordable clean energy to African communities
Mobile Power, a UK-based tech company, delivers affordable clean energy to off-grid communities in Africa. Globally, 1 billion people lack access to electricity, yet existing off-grid solutions can only commercially reach the wealthiest 15%. Mobile Power’s innovation can profitably reach over 90% of the market, while saving poor households 15% of their total income. This directly contributes to SDG 7 (Affordable and Clean Energy) and SDG 1 (No Poverty). 3B IMPACT works with Mobile Power to embed its impact strategy and scale its business. We do this by:
- Helping Mobile Power to articulate the link between its commercial model and social impact, and win GBP 1.85 million of UK Government funding.
- Reducing risks and improving opportunities for women, supporting SDG 5 (Gender Equality) and establishing strategic partnerships supporting SDG 17 (Partnerships for the Goals).
- Undertaking impact assessments and leading research to support human-centred product development and commercialisation.
- Assisting Mobile Power’s GBP 2 million equity raise, developing strategy and pitch materials, building a data room and engaging with potential investors.
“3B IMPACT has been invaluable in helping Mobile Power to commercialise our positive social impact and attract investments to scale the business.” Founder of Mobile Power, Jono West
