Van Doorne advised BOM, Yard Energy and Doen Participaties in the due diligence on Rural Spark. Rural Spark, a Dutch company founded in 2013, designs, develops and realises energy solutions for emerging markets in Afrika.
Rural Spark is an interesting start-up as by providing high-quality energy kits that stimulate village level entrepreneurship, users gain access to safe and sustainable energy, reliable and affordable. In an area with a limited amount of electricity, people can join Rural Spark. The Rural Spark Spark Station allows to buy and sell energy from the Rural Spark network. Selling surpluses to others allows for additional income and increases efficiency as all the energy generated is actually being used.
