Energy Vision: progress update from the first ESCO of scale in SSA
Energy Vision plans to operate thousands of sites in the coming years
Between 2011-2016, MNOs in Africa seeking to reduce operational complexity had preferred strategic partnerships with tower companies to ESCO partnerships. But when the tower sale process of one operator in Gabon faltered, they sought an alternative strategic partner: pioneering ESCO Energy Vision. Africa’s first ESCO project of scale, Energy Vision is currently operating and managing 280 towers, 40% of which are off grid. Over two years into the project, TowerXchange reconnected with our old friend Ofer Ahiraz, CEO of Energy Vision, to learn how they are progressing.
