ACE One
by African Clean Energy

Description

About 2.6 billion people in the world do not have access to modern and clean energy which is driving a range of issues across the world including poverty, respiratory illnesses, and deforestation. The technology and know-how needed to enable energy access exists, but is currently applied in two siloed sectors: thermal energy (cookstoves) and electricity. This disparate approach has resulted in a market gap that can have serious environmental repercussions and pressure on local natural resources. The ACE One is a solution that addresses this very gap by using a solar-charged LiFePO4 battery to power the ventilator needed to create a truly clean biomass combustion while also giving users access to lighting and phone charging. Built with durable materials (8-12 years life cycle), using 50-85% less fuel, burning any type of solid biomass it is sold on a 6-9 month micro-loan. With this model, ACE is likely the only company that can give $2-a-day people access to a $100+ product.
