Factor is a consulting firm specialised in the energy transition. Factor offers an unrivalled combination of skills and expertise to help governments, utility companies, industry, NGOs and new entrants to benefit from the energy transition: maximise renewables, develop energy efficiency potential, end-use sector coupling and decentralised generation (including off-grid).

On off-grid, Factor has worked with the ECOWAS Centre for Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency (ECREEE) on strategies and policies for the promotion of clean energy based mini-grids. In addition, Factor worked with the governments of Mali, Madagascar and the Philippines, providing training on designing tender processes, for hybridising with photovoltaic existing mini-grids, adapted to the local context and, subsequently, supporting the individuals responsible for the process, from drawing up the basis of the call for tender, up to publication and the awarding process.
