DISTRIBUTION MODEL INNOVATION
Imole Energy Solutions was founded by to create energy access for the under-served in Nigeria. The venture will create energy access at Makoko Waterfront Communities, an urban slum in Lagos, Nigeria by distributing thousands of solar lamps.
The organization will create jobs for 200 women as clean energy entrepreneurs and train 40 youths as solar technicians in one year thereby increasing sources of income for community members. With a projected energy access created for 5,000 women in one year, this will help eliminate the burning of 1.33 million liters of kerosene in the lifetime of the products (estimated at 5 years) thereby reducing about 3.07 million kg of carbon emission (at a rate or 2.3 kg of CO2 per liter of kerosene). They ultimately plan to scale the venture to achieve the goal of reaching 1 million beneficiaries by 2030 to support Goal 7 of the Sustainable Development Goals, ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable and modern energy for all.
