Sparks Electrical News November 2017Front cover story

ENGIE and Fenix have announced an agreement whereby ENGIE will acquire 100% of Fenix International, a next generation company that offers solar home systems (SHS) in Africa. Bruno Bensasson, CEO of ENGIE Africa says that combining the strengths of ENGIE, a global energy player and Fenix, a successful company with strong customer focus, high-quality products and an experienced team anchored in the heart of Sub-Saharan Africa, will enable faster deployment of SHS to the large African population still lacking access to electricity. Given that over 600 million people lack access to modern energy in Africa, the investment will also contribute to ENGIE’s goal of using the latest digital technologies to provide 20 million people around the world with access to decarbonised, decentralised energy by 2020.
