This project aims to create a platform for Nigerians to easily access renewable energy solutions and financing. We are partnered with a startup called ShareNergy based in Nigeria that aims to address the energy deficit in the country by providing easier access to solar. The platform will aggregate customers, suppliers, and financiers. Our current solution involves building a web app that takes in customer info and matches them with suppliers and banks to create the optimal renewable energy system and financing options through a custom algorithm. We also hope to utilize data collected from customer solar installations to improve the matching process. Overall, we hope our solution will help renewable energy play an important role in providing better access to energy for many Nigerians.
There is a large energy deficit in Nigeria today. Many people rely on non-renewable energy sources.
