Inspired Evolution and Schneider Electric have agreed to collaborate on various energy-related solutions for the African region.

The agreement provides for the exploration of a multi-faceted collaboration across a number of business opportunities, including Energy-as-a-Service (EaaS) solutions as well as energy efficiency, microgrid and decarbonization.

The partnership will explore these opportunities across identified priority countries, industries, and market segments, through a combination of Schneider Electric’s technical expertise and EaaS solutions with offices across Africa, and Inspired Evolution’s deep networks, business model and financing expertise.

Schneider Electric is well-positioned to address these opportunities, given its leading position in EaaS with global presence, cross industry experience, and full-suite best-in-class technology and service offerings.

Inspired Evolution, as a specialized climate mitigation and energy transition investment advisory business with a broad African footprint, offers over 15 years of proven track record Internal in clean energy, energy access and energy efficiency investments, with award-winning ESG impact performance.

The collaborative partnership will be officially launched by Christopher Clarke, Managing Partner at Inspired Evolution, Steven Faure, Partner and EaaS Lead at Inspired Evolution, and Devan Pillay, Cluster President Anglophone Africa at Schneider Electric. Clarke said: “This joint venture is an important and strategic development in our climate finance strategy and approach that includes forging strong and meaningful partnerships with global players like Schneider Electric to help us to decarbonize, decentralize and digitize innovative and affordable clean energy solutions, financed through our Evolution funds, in contribution to transforming Africa’s energy landscape.”

As part of Schneider Electric’s promise to reduce CO2 emissions and help organizations around the world shift to become carbon positive, the company proactively works with partners to create new business models that will promote a more resilient and sustainable future.

“Partnerships are fundamental to the goal of achieving a greener, more sustainable world, and Inspired evolution have pioneered new approaches to sustainable business,” said Pillay.

“We believe that, by combining our areas of expertise, we will be able to make significant progress in the space of clean energy and energy efficiency and scale up these ideas to benefit organizations and societies globally.”
