As a patient investor, we prioritize local socio-economic impact over short-term profitability.

Technological innovation and the organization of operations by our teams are part of our commitment to long-term viability, and are firmly rooted in local ecosystems and know-how.

A pioneer company

iED was founded in the late 80s, a time when climate change had not yet been demonstrated, and access to electricity in so-called “developing” countries was considered a luxury.

At a time when renewable energies were still in their infancy, few entrepreneurs were ready to commit to these sectors with their uncertain business models. Yet the fundamentals were already clear: energy development based on fossil fuels was not sustainable in the long term, and the aspiration of all the world’s populations to access modern energy would only grow.

With this in mind, we decided to take action. We worked on the emergence of market opportunities through a well-argued advocacy campaign. We then supported the first pilot projects, and are now a global player in the energy transition and access to electricity.

Commited employees

More than just a job, working with us means putting your energy at the service of a humanist ambition. Our teams, mostly based in our local offices, are committed and passionate, contributing their expertise and know-how to an ambitious vision.

Since our creation, the relationship of trust and respect built up with our partners and employees has been at the heart of our commitment to society. Our commitment is reciprocal, and our high standards serve our impact.
