We are a company focused on unleashing human potential.
Our vision is to provide a solution to energy insecurity anywhere in the world. We’re tackling this problem by engineering clean, affordable power generation and storage systems that provide customers with reliable electricity no matter if they live in the city or countryside, or if they have a grid connection or not.
Whether it’s a pharmacist in Nairobi who needs to keep medication refrigerated or a family in a remote part of Indonesia adding lights to help their children study after dark, our technologies will create new possibilities in education, sanitation, entertainment and business.
Zola is a global effort.
Born out of an idea at Oxford University in 2012 to provide power to the billions of people with no or limited access to the electric grid. Made possible by technological innovations like efficient solar energy harvesting and storage, PayGo microfinance and mobile money. Tested and improved across Africa, where we learned what we needed to build the first off-grid solar systems that made clean energy accessible for all.d Designed in California. Built to last by a high-tech, NASA-approved production facility in Malaysia.
We are on a mission to deliver clean, affordable, reliable electricity anywhere.
Our breakthrough ideas to power and empower billions of potential customers in developing countries caught the attention of industry leaders like TESLA, EDF Energy and HELIOS Investments The world’s best cleantech talent then started coming onboard. Together with our ever-expanding base of customers, we’re now scaling up operations to achieve our vision.
In just four years, ZOLA Electric is now working in five countries. More than 1 million daily users have gained access to uninterrupted power, whether they live in a city or in the countryside.
