African Clean Energy (ACE) is the rapidly growing manufacturer and distributor of its proprietary ACE 1 system, an innovative portable energy unit that combines wood-like fuels and solar power to provide clean efficient thermal energy (for cooking and heating) and basic electricity (for lighting, device charging, small electronics) to individual households in developing countries. From its HQ in Amsterdam, ACE manages subsidiaries in Lesotho, Uganda and Cambodia; most product there is sold B2C on credit. The company is tech-focused and is currently launching a new Android-enabled version of the ACE 1, which will include Pay-as-you-Go functionality to decrease consumer credit risk, and dynamic usage data tracking to give vital insight on energy consumption trends.

ACE’s products demonstrably have significant and measurable positive impact on health, environment, gender equality, and safety. ACE believes they can play a key role in permanently lifting vulnerable communities out of the most egregious forms of poverty.
