Amaloul – Our Pilot Site in Niger

Back in 2017, we ceremoniously opened our first ImpactSite® in Amaloul. Niger was thus the second country after Mali where Africa GreenTec was empowering people with sustainable energy solutions. To this day, Amaloul is considered a reference project for off-grid installations in Niger. Since then, local people have benefited from sustainable electricity, especially on an economic level. Amaloul's marketplace has become a lively and popular meeting place for the entire region. The sale of goods from the village is flourishing, and so is the economy. ZDF accompanied our work on site from the very beginning. This resulted in one of the most viewed video reports about Africa GreenTec.

Life on the Border of the Sahara

Amaloul is geographically located directly on the border to the Sahara Desert, or even in the Sahara already, according to some sources. The village is located in the west of the country, east of the capital Niamey and not far from the border with Mali.

Amaloul – Our Pilot Project in Niger

The story of the electrification of Amaloul is very closely linked to the story of Africa GreenTec. For us, Amaloul was a milestone project and so the connection to the village community is still very strong today. Therefore, we have written a detailed blog post about the village of Amaloul and its electrification through our solar container.
