About All On
Nigeria has a 175,000MW power gap and an estimated 28 million households and 11 million SMEs that are either off grid or receive less than four hours of power per day (bad grid). This amounts to 120 million people living without access to reliable and affordable power. Addressing the access-to-energy challenge in Nigeria requires a combination of both the traditional large-scale power generation approaches and distributed power innovations that are smaller scale, lower cost, and quicker to market.
All On Partnerships for Energy Access (‘All On’) was established by Shell as an independent impact investing company to work with partners to increase access to commercial energy products and services for the under-served and un-served off-grid markets in Nigeria, with a special focus on the Niger Delta.
All On builds values-driven local and international partnerships to help scale business models. All On seeks both financial returns and social impact – to provide and/or improve access-to-energy for millions of households and SMEs. The company operates a lean structure to ensure efficiency and speed and continues to leverage expertise from Shell and other partners. Governance is through a Grant Advisory Committee and Board of Directors.
All On invests in off-grid energy solutions spanning solar, wind, hydro, biomass and gas technologies deployed by both foreign and local access-to-energy companies that complement available grid power across the Nigeria and help bridge the significant energy gap. All On provides debt and equity capital to early and growth-stage businesses in Nigeria’s nascent off-grid energy sector. Due to the scale of the energy gap in Nigeria, All On also partners with other (development) financing institutions to develop enabling finance facilities that all businesses in the Nigerian off-grid energy sector can access. To ensure an enabling environment for sector players and further de-risk All On investments, the company works with partners to carry out market-building activities for off-grid energy including advocacy, research, consumer awareness, and capacity building.
The All On Hub has been set up by All On with support from Shell and the Rockefeller Foundation. It is a facility established to build the capabilities of ideation, angel, and growth stage off-grid energy entrepreneurs operating in the Nigerian energy sector.
