Gridworks makes equity investments in transmission, distribution and distributed renewable energy in Africa. Wholly owned and supported by British International Investment, the UK Government’s development finance institution, we develop and invest in critical power infrastructure, both on and off-grid. We are a partner to governments, utilities, and companies in the African power sector.
Without reliable and well-run power infrastructure, companies don’t invest and grow, and economies fail to reach their potential. In Africa today, almost 600m people have no access to electricity. For those that do have a connection, their consumption is only 20% of the global average. Our impact comes from building financially sustainable companies that can deliver power to businesses and households across the continent.
