Soleil Power’s CEO attending the Energy Access Investment Forum in Nigeria

The CEO of Soleil Power attended the Energy Access Investment Forum under the Energy Catalyst program in Nigeria, a pivotal gathering that underscores the importance of investing in renewable energy technologies to expand access to electricity in developing regions.

The Energy Access Investment Forum serves as a platform for dialogue, collaboration, and action, bringing together key stakeholders from across the public and private sectors to address the urgent need for investment in energy access initiatives.

As the global community works towards achieving the Sustainable Development Goal 7 (SDG7) of ensuring access to affordable, reliable, sustainable, and modern energy for all by 2030, initiatives like the Energy Catalyst program through Innovate UK play a vital role in accelerating progress. By catalysing innovation, mobilizing investment, and fostering collaboration, the program helps pave the way for a future where energy access is not just a dream but a reality for billions of people around the world. One of the key themes of discussion at the Energy Access Investment Forum was the pivotal role of energy storage in enabling universal access to electricity. In many off-grid and remote areas, unreliable grid infrastructure and limited access to electricity pose significant challenges to economic development, education, healthcare, and quality of life. By deploying innovative battery technologies, communities can store excess renewable energy generated from sources such as solar and wind, ensuring reliable power supply even in the absence of grid connectivity.
