WHAT WE DO

What we do

We are a trading platform, a system integrator, a service provider and a business incubator. We combine quality solar products with turnkey solutions and provide services to create sustainable businesses in off-grid frontier markets worldwide. We have deployed approx. 250 E-HUBBs worldwide in 15 countries, reaching approx. 5m people.

As a B2B trading platform, we offer a paramount range of selected quality products – ranging from thermic solar products, PV modules, solar inverters to batteries and more.

Our key strengths derive from the “E-HUBB”, our proprietary award-winning solar technology-design. Our E-HUBBs are designed to power the energy-connectivity-productivity gateway in rural off-grid communities. We have deployed approx. 250 E-HUBBs worldwide in 15 countries, reaching approx. 5m people.

Services

As a service provider, we have years of experience consulting our clients. Some of our services are:

Goal: Develop, implement and operate sustainable, inclusive, profitable go-to market strategies for frontier markets, while serving BoP communities with energy, connectivity, essential products and services.

Short description: Based on Solarkiosk’s proprietary E-HUBB technology, intertwined with Solarkiosk’s inclusive business model, we help our partners to design, implement and operated a solar powered Retail & Trading network, targeting rural off-grid/bad grid Bottom of the Pyramid communities. Our partners in particular benefit from Solarkiosk’s many years of experience on implementing and operating East Africa’s largest rural retail network with more than 200 E-HUBBs trading outlets in 4 East-Africa countries.

As part of the greenfield development, we will in a step-by-sep approach first check the feasibility, develop a detailed business plan, pilot and roll-out a solar powered trading network consisting of our prefabricated solar powered shops (“E-HUBBs”).

Conditional to a successful pilot phase, the aim of the project will be to incorporate and operate a trading company (“Company”), roll out the E-HUBB network and implement all required policies, tools and procedures, with the objective to establish a profitable company.

The objective is to create an economically, environmentally and socially sustainable company. Establishing a profitable retail Company in BoP communities will foster the following sustainable development goals (SDG’s):

 SDG Goal:Supporting these goals through:
sgd 1GOAL 1: No Poverty
  • Reducing poverty penalty
  • Ensuring affordable prices for quality products
sdg 2GOAL 2: Zero Hunger
  • Distribution of food
  • Distribution of quality farming inputs for farmers to grow crops
  • Solar powered drying and cold storage to reduce food loss
sdg 4GOAL 4: Quality Education
  • Distribution of solar lamps for night time studies
  • Distribution of school material
  • Other cooperation with local school to better the quality of education
sdg 5GOAL 5: Gender Equality
  • empowering predominantly female operators
sdg 6GOAL 6: Clean Water and Sanitation
  • Distribution of safe drinking water
  • Possibility of purifying water with the E-HUBB
sdg 7GOAL 7: Affordable and Clean Energy
  • Businesses run by solar power
  • Distribution of solar powered products
sdg 8GOAL 8: Decent work and economic growth
  • Create jobs and businesses
  • Create entrepreneurial opportunities, ranging from leadership to BoP level, accelerating economic growth in last mile communities
sdg 9GOAL 9: Industry, Innovation and Infrastructure
  • Building modern, solar powered infrastructure
  • Enable entrepreneurship and innovation with the infrastructure
sdg 17GOAL 17: Partnerships to achieve the Goal
  • By becoming the energy and connectivity gateway in BoP communities, giving local and global partners the possibility to develop their activities through the local company as a partner within the communities

The Project will be structured in five phases, starting with a feasibility study and ending after successful implementation of the country/region wide roll-out. The process flow of the project has been designed to de-risk an investment at each step and give our partner full control of the project in each phase.

Incubator

SOLARKIOSK Solutions is passionate about bringing new solar power products, technologies and solutions to off-grid frontier markets. We have for many years incubated new technology solutions and business models tailored for the specific needs of rural off-grid communities. The idea for our E-HUBB was borne out of the realization that last mile distribution is a key component for energy access in off-grid areas. Our Connected Solar Market Centers (CSMC) are a concept developed by our operators because they wanted to get the solar energy from our E-HUBBs to work for other local businesses: a butcher, a restaurant, a viewing hall, a hotel (picture of first Kenyan “CSMC”?). We introduced “reverse supply chain” to rural communities, so that we did not only “push” solar and sustainable products into frontier market, but also “pulled” products from these markets, mainly agricultural and artisan products.

We have realized that energy access is a great enabler for off-grid communities, but productive use of energy is the real game-changer. Energy and Connectivity are the main ingredients for transformation in agriculture, health, education, administration and communication. We are solar product and solutions experts, but we also think outside the box. Our approach is holistic as we have millions of validated data to understand the community in its socio-economic entirety. We therefore connect energy with supply chain with agriculture with health with education with communication with administration.

We continue to incubate and spin-off new technology and business solutions. We connect innovation with investment so that successfully tested ideas can scale.
