WATT Renewable Corporation, a Canadian/Nigerian company specializing in sustainable development, has announced a partnership with Clear Blue Technologies International Inc. to provide energy solutions to the telecom industry across Nigeria and other African nations. This collaboration is set to roll out 1000 solar hybrid systems to telecom towers over the next three years, targeting high-growth markets in the region.
In October, WATT Renewable secured a US$13 million investment aimed at expanding its operations. This funding has facilitated the purchase of 160 systems from Clear Blue for $1.58 million CAD, with shipments expected in the fourth quarter of 2023 and the first quarter of 2024. The partnership is built on a Preferred Alliance Agreement that will see both companies co-market WATT’s Energy as a Service, which is powered by Clear Blue’s Esite-Micro technology and Illumience Smart Cloud platform.
The CEOs of both companies, Miriam Tuerk of Clear Blue and Oluwole Eweje of WATT Renewables have emphasized the strategic importance of this partnership. It aims to leverage growth potential and enhance operational excellence within Africa’s rapidly expanding telecom sector. The initiative, dubbed “On the Road to Zero Diesel,” aligns with efforts to achieve net-zero objectives for telecom operators across the continent, marking a significant step towards sustainable energy use in African telecommunications.
