‘Light all night’ with HomeSmartTM machine-learning technology
Azuri HomeSmart™ is unique technology that brings state-of-the-art machine learning to solar homes in Africa.
HomeSmart™ learns a customer’s typical power-usage pattern and adapts energy output to manage the system to the customer’s needs.
Unlike conventional systems that can shut down early in cloudy conditions, Azuri HomeSmart™ monitors and adapts to climatic conditions to ensure customers have ‘light at night’.
This novel use of machine learning in the context of small domestic solar home systems has attracted numerous global awards.
Innovative financing for a rapidly growing sector
Innovative Financing Unleashing Solar
Azuri believes innovative financing has the potential to revolutionise the off-grid power sector.
Our company has successfully worked with and continues to partner with a wide variety of global financiers. Grant providers including AECF and USAID have supported Azuri’s entry into new markets and accelerated product development efforts.
Azuri has worked with crowd-funders such as TRINE and Lendahand, while results-based-financing initiatives funded by GIZ and Global LEAP have also accelerated the rollout of new products in underserved markets.
In 2017, based on our solid historical customer payment track record, Azuri launched its receivables financing program with support from the European Union program ElectriFI, where debt is secured against forward customer revenues. The innovative design of the debt facility allows commercial investors to finance the growth of the sector in a targeted and sustainable way.
