About All On

Nigeria has a 175,000MW power gap and an estimated 28 million households and 11 million SMEs that are either totally offgrid or who 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 Nigeria’s access-to-energy challenge requires both traditional large-scale power supply approaches and distributed power innovations which are smaller-scale, lower cost, and quicker to bring 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 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. It 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.

It invests in off-grid energy solutions spanning solar, wind, hydro, biomass, and gas technologies deployed by both foreign and local access-to-energy companies to complement available grid power across Nigeria and help bridge the significant energy gap. It 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 its investments, All On also works with partners to carry out market-building activities for off-grid energy, including advocacy, research, consumer awareness, and capacity building.
