Launch of AMDA

The Africa Mini-grid Developers Association (AMDA) has been launched on 13th April 2018. A press release can be found here.

AMDA has chapters already in 2 countries (Kenya, Tanzania) and plans to expand to 3 more countries this year (Nigeria, Ethiopia and Uganda) and eventually to all of Africa. The current 11 member companies service more than 11,000 connections, and include innovative start-ups and established utilities.

Now is a pivotal moment for the mini-grid industry and AMDA looks forward to working with you to achieve our full potential. The International Energy Agency (IEA) estimates that up to 290 million Africans will be served by mini-grids by 2030, also noting that mini-grids and other distributed, renewable solutions are the least cost option for connecting three-quarters of the unelectrified population.
