More than 600 million people in sub-Saharan Africa live without access to electricity. Most countries are unlikely to connect their entire populations to grid electricity for years, if not decades. As a result, many households rely on expensive, dangerous, pollution-causing kerosene, and diesel fuel for their energy needs.

Scaling-up Off-Grid Energy will accelerate growth in the off-grid energy market to provide 20 million households in sub-Saharan Africa with access to modern, clean, and affordable electricity. Launching this week at the 2016 Global Entrepreneurship Summit, the vision of the Grand Challenge for Development is to spur a vibrant marketplace of enterprises that provide off-grid energy solutions that meet the needs of low-income consumers across the African continent.

Scaling Off-Grid Energy is a global partnership between the U.S. Agency for International Development, Power Africa, the U.K. Department for International Development, and the Shell Foundation to incentivize technological innovation, fund early stage companies, and support critical elements of the off-grid ecosystem. However, we can’t do it alone.

The Free Basics Platform launched in Nigeria a few weeks ago. It was launched by Facebook in 2013 in developing countries around the world in an attempt to bring more people online. Ime Achibong, Director of Strategic Partnerships at Facebook engaged the developer community in our space to help them understand how to leverage the service.

The Free Basics platform provides developers with the tools to create services that integrate with Free Basics.

The goal, Facebook says, is to work with as many developers possible to extend the benefits of connectivity to diverse, local communities around the world.
In Nigeria, Facebook is partnering with Airtel to provide zero-rated access to services like Jobberman, wecyclers, and much more.

Keen on leveraging the more than 1 billion people who use Facebook daily? Visit the developer page to discover how to submit your service/ product to join Free Basics.
