All On and Solstroem sign investment deal to finance technology platform for carbon credits

All On, a Shell-funded impact investment company for the off-grid energy markets in Nigeria, is pleased to announce an investment in the Danish Technology Company Solstroem.

COPENHAGEN, Denmark, May 16, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- All On, a Shell-funded impact investment company focusing on strengthening the off-grid energy markets in Nigeria, is pleased to announce an investment in the Danish Technology Company Solstroem. In doing so, All On matches a previous investment made by Persistent Energy Capital LLC into the company in November 2021.

"We are really thrilled about this partnership which supports the development of Solstroem's platform that will enable micro carbon credit in everyday activities," said All On CEO, Wiebe Boer. "All On is taking a chance on an innovative business model which could prove transformative and create hard currency revenue generating opportunities for Nigerian renewable energy companies.

The investment in Solstroem supports the further development and scaling of the company's software platform, which enables solar home system distributors and other solar off-grid operators across Sub-Saharan Africa to issue and sell carbon credits on the international Voluntary Carbon Market. This investment is an opportunity for All On to strengthen access to climate finance for their existing portfolio companies, as well as other established and emerging players in the solar off-grid space in Nigeria and beyond.

"We are very grateful for All On's support in our mission to make carbon markets more accessible to solar off-grid operators", said Karim Jabbar, CEO and Co-Founder of Solstroem. "The relentless work of these actors in giving marginalized communities access to renewable energy has a considerable impact in terms of CO2 emission reductions, as well as measurable social co-benefits. We are therefore looking forward to collaborating with All On in making this solution available to companies in their network, and to enabling an increased climate finance flow to where it is really needed."

This investment will support Solstroem's aim to increase revenue streams of solar developers around the world by linking their projects to voluntary carbon markets in a transparent, verifiable, and sustainable manner, enabling the purchase of carbon credits associated with their projects

The carbon credits issued on the Solstroem platform are fully traceable, calculated on the basis of an established UN Clean Development Mechanism (CDM) methodology, and are third-party verified by DNV. The issued credits are made available on the platform to corporate buyers wishing to compensate for their CO2 footprint.

About Solstroem

Solstroem has been in operation since 2018, and has so far established working partnerships with some of the major solar distributors and software vendors in the industry, such as Engie Energy Access, Sun King, and Angaza . Solstroem's quantitative approach to carbon credit generation lowers the costs of verification, and thus the barriers of entry to the carbon market, from which small-scale solar operators are currently excluded. This is done through IT integrations between Solstroem and its solar partners, which allow for the continuous issuing of data-driven carbon credits, on a daily or weekly basis. Furthermore, the no-up-front-cost business model applied by Solstroem makes the company's solution particularly interesting for small and medium sized solar home system distributors, as these typically struggle to get the financing to scale their business and can't afford to pay upfront costs for carbon verification schemes.
