About the project:

EDFI ElectriFI, together with InfraCo Africa and Danish DFI IFU have together committed USD 15.5m to enable Africa GreenCo to scale its innovative offering as Zambia’s first renewable energy buyer and services provider.

Africa GreenCo (AGG) acts as an intermediary offtaker and service provider, purchasing power from renewable IPPs and selling that electricity to utilities and private sector offtakers (i.e. commercial and industrial users) and markets of the Southern African Power Pool. In that perspective, the company intends to address the poor creditworthiness of the state-owned utilities. AGG aims to establish dedicated entities in selected countries; starting with Zambia.
