Solarge has signed a contract with Infrastructure Corporation of Nigeria (InfraCorp) and African Green Infrastructure Investment Bank (AfGIIB). The partnership aims to build a state-of-the-art lightweight solar panel factory in Africa. The Memorandum of Understanding, signed during the UN climate summit COP28, marks a crucial step in the realization of sustainable energy production in Nigeria.

The focus is on local production capacities that stimulate employment, accelerate electrification and promote economic growth. Gerard de Leede, Chief Technology Officer of Solarge, speaks proudly of the joint efforts at COP28: “We are honored to have signed a Memorandum of Understanding for large-scale production of our lightweight solar panels in Nigeria. Together we contribute to a sustainable and resilient energy future for the country.” The new factory will produce ultra-lightweight solar panels with a minimal carbon footprint, making Nigeria a global leader in sustainable local manufacturing and critical infrastructure, InfraCorp said.
