Generation Investment Management will invest in the Kenyan company M-Kopa. The company installs solar panels coupled with lithium-ion batteries. Bringing solar plus storage to Kenya could help keep the lights on but affordability continues to be a problem. To overcome the challenge, M-Kopa leases its solar systems for the same cost as a daily supply of kerosene or wood. With plans like that already in place energy storage deployments will continue to increase.
