The Solar Power Makers – ZDF documentary about Africa GreenTec


Penniless and without a chance. There’s misery in Africa. 50 years of development policy didn’t alleviate poverty. A German-African start-up wants to do the impossible now, with a revolutionary business idea.

this documentary accompanies the team of AFrica GreenTec on their trip to Niger in the Tahoua region.

Niger is one of the countries with the lowest development and the highest birth rate worldwide.

Africa GreenTec has installed the first solar container Amali 2017 in the Sahara. This documentation accompanies the team during the great challenge in the implementation of such a project.

The plant is still running today and supplies 150 families in Amaloul as well as the health station, the school and the mosque with renewable energy every day until late in the evening.

A major technical challenge, especially for the lithium storage units.
