Solar energy

Traffic jams in Kenya’s capital Nairobi cost the economy an estimated $1bn each year. In 2019, Scaling International worked with Beba Safi in Nairobi, Kenya to do a sales training and provided sales management advise. This lead to new mobility measures. The main focus was on designing a strategic solar energy sales plan. In 2020, Scaling International continued to work with Beba Safi in order to support the implementation of the sales plan. Expected sales increase of 150%. 

Biomass energy

In 2019, Scaling International worked with a private investor to develop a strategic sales plan based on a feasibility study and a market & customer research. These studies showed the efficiency of a technology that converts sugarcane bagasse into reusable, high quality energy briquettes and pellets for customers looking for a sustainable energy solution. This work led to a investment guarantee. In 2021, Scaling International continues to work with this and other investors to support the implementation of the strategic sales plan.
