EM-ONE is a dynamic company in a scale-up stage looking to further build our high-performance and impact-oriented team. We are a team of technology and engineering experts focused on accelerating the sustainable energy transition in West Africa. We leverage over a decade of experience providing end-to-end solutions in distributed energy systems – microgrids, energy storage systems, and large-scale solar systems for utilities, C&I (commercial & industrial) and remote applications, smart electricity infrastructure, and powering healthcare.

To date, we have designed and built over 300 solar microgrids for energy access as well as for commercial & industrial applications. Our current focus is on expanding our impact across three business lines:

  1. Energy access and powering healthcare: Solar plus storage modular microgrids that range from 5 kWp – 5000 kWp
  2. Utilities, Commercial and industrial (C&I): Solar power plants, energy storage systems, and advanced microgrids (interconnected mini-grid) from 0.5 MWp – 100 MWp, ESS (MWh+)
  3. Smart Electricity Infrastructure: Smart Grid Infrastructure & technologies focused on grid modernization, grid stability, enabling Renewable Energy grid interconnection, and charging infrastructure for e-mobility.

We have exciting and transformative projects lined up, and it’s time to bring in a new team member who is as motivated and excited about technology and making their mark on Africa’s energy transition as we are.
