Mubasher: Orange Energies has announced opening its digital energy platform to all firms on Africa to boost access.

The Orange Smart Energies software facilitates prepaid solar and meter payments via mobile money, reducing non-payment risk for producers in Africa and the Middle East, according to a press release.

The business model sees Orange Energies partner firms to provide downstream digital services and distribution networks to reach more rural users. 

Jérôme Hénique, CEO of Orange Middle East and Africa, said: “By opening up our Orange Smart Energies platform to all energy producers, we are taking a major step forward in our commitment to universal access to energy in Africa and the Middle East."

Nat-Sy Missamou, Senior Vice President of Orange Energies for Africa and the Middle East, stated: "Leveraging existing digital and financial inclusion solutions, our pay-as-you-go service is delivered through a distribution model tailored to African markets."

Since launching in 2017, Orange Energies' goal has been making power more available by becoming energy companies' preferred digital partner. 

It now operates in 12 countries reaching over 300,000 households daily, as it expands across Africa where over half lack electricity access.
