We focus on experience and sustainably successful solutions. Our E-Wave shareholders (partners) are among the off-grid pioneers – especially in East Africa. For example, E-Wave partners founded the first off-grid solar stations there as early as 2008, which are still operating profitably today. They were the first to use electric motors for fishing operations on Lake Victoria back in 2017. Our partners also include Wolfgang Gregor, who co-founded the Global Off-Grid Association GOGLA on behalf of the World Bank and served as its first Executive Director.”
