Freeplay Energy has long been recognised for providing clean energy products which address the lighting and communications needs of those living off-grid. A significant proportion of our products are in use in Africa, where solar energy in particular is making an increasing contribution to achievements in the fields of education, agriculture, health and community development.

There is still a long way to go, however. And not just with energy access. Almost 1 billion people worldwide –one in eight of the global population – have no regular access to clean, safe water. As a result, they are denied the very basics of life: hydration, sanitation and health.

Products such as those made by Freeplay are designed for use by people living off-grid - often in remote, rural locations, in aid and development environments or as part of a major emergency response programme – and they rely on local logistics infrastructures to reach their destination.
