Odyssey Energy Solutions, an end-to-end platform for financing, procuring equipment for, and monitoring distributed energy assets, is excited to announce its partnership with the African Minigrid Developers Association (AMDA) to implement its remote monitoring and control technology within AMDA's network of mini-grid developers. This collaboration is an important step toward enhancing operational efficiency and data-driven decision-making in the off-grid energy sector across Africa.

As part of the pilot program, AMDA will deploy Odyssey's remote monitoring and control technology across four mini-grid developers within its network. This initiative aims to provide developers with access to real-time operational data, empowering them to optimize the performance of their mini-grid sites and deliver reliable energy services to their communities.

“We are thrilled to partner with Odyssey Energy Solutions to leverage their technology in this pilot program," said Amon Mwadime, Director- Research, Data & Standards at AMDA. "By integrating remote monitoring and control capabilities into mini-grid operations, we are taking a significant step towards improving the reliability and efficiency of off-grid energy systems in Africa. Our members will truly reap the benefits of automated data and real-time insights, bidding farewell to the days of manual data collection.”
