The story is about June, a Nigerian CEO of a solar company based in Accra, Ghana. When the pandemic hits, June, who thrives on face-to-face contact, struggles to work with her dysfunctional pan-African team via Zoom calls and new technology to save the company from bankruptcy.
The transition to renewable energy is not fast enough. One reason is that there’s no emotional connection to it. Since I’m the co-founder of Renewables in Africa (RIA), a clean energy engineering company and a Media platform with the ambition is to raise technical awareness about Renewable Energy and Energy Management in the African Continent and disseminate the information within the industry and the wider society. Our mission is simple: Bring (Back) Power to Africa. Since I love writing and telling stories, I combined both passions and created this show about entrepreneurship, love and solar.
