Amped Innovation designs and makes high-performing, off-grid products. Off-grid communities frequently lack the infrastructure for wired appliances like kitchen equipment, fans, or reliable lighting. Amped produces an innovative solar controller that delivers five times as much power with only a quarter of the components.
A catalytic Autodesk grant enabled Amped to jumpstart pilot programs to test their thesis on how lowering the average cost per watt would open energy access to people living off the grid. Since then, it has received orders to ship more than 150,000 solar units across seven African countries.
