NKO ENERGY

NKo Energy is a start-up focused on providing competitive renewable energy solutions to businesses in Africa.

With 620 million people off-grid, Africa it the most underserved continent in the world in terms of access to electricity. No grid or poor grid situations translate into huge difficulties and additional costs for companies: more than 50% are equipped with generators, and electricity is considered the biggest obstacle to do business in Africa.

NKo Energy aims to bridge that gap by bringing competitive, easy-to deploy, and pre-financed renewable energy solutions.

NKo Energy is seeded by LiquidAfrica, a leading corporate finance and advisory firm having a 15+ years’ track-record with high growth companies on the continent.
