Our Story

Latitude Solar is a niche consultancy focused on the solar markets in Sub-Saharan Africa. We aim to make the solar markets of the respective countries more accessible and transparent so it becomes easier for (international) companies and NGOs to invest or carry out their projects.

Latitude Solar was founded by Gijs Stevers, an environmental economist. He previously has been involved in various renewable energy projects throughout Sub-Saharan Africa and has worked for an off-grid solar company in Tanzania for 2 years. There he experienced the complexity involved in the consultation and design of solar power systems in off-grid or poor grid scenarios.

Latitude Solar manages several websites and provides tools and resources dedicated to making the solar markets in Sub Saharan countries more accessible and transparent. Moreover, the company provides consultancy services such as feasibility studies, market insights, and tender design. Read more on solar in Africa here.
