Enel Green Power and Swiss outfit Seedstars World have set up a competition to identify start-up companies in Africa developing technologies to provide access to electricity in rural areas.

The Africa Energy Track challenge aims to enhance technology and entrepreneurship in sub-Saharan rural areas by bringing innovative energy solutions focused on electric mobility, storage, distributed generation and energy efficiency.

The eventual winner will enter a three-month growth and acceleration programme, including financial support, Enel said.

Enel Green Power head Antonio Cammisecra said: “Through this partnership, Enel has the opportunity to gain access to the most innovative companies taking a step forward in the search for new, disruptive business models that can foster socio-economic development in rural Africa.”
