According to a Wall Street Journal report, the projects will involve a variety of ZTE’s green energy products and solutions, including solar lighting systems, mobile solar power systems, solar power for telecommunications base stations and solar power for household lighting systems.

Oumarou Dogari Moumouni, the former mayor of Niamey, the capital of Niger, said, “The solar street lighting project constructed by ZTE is one of the best renewable energy projects that exists in Niger.”

Africa suffers from constant power shortages leaving more than 580mn people to light their homes with kerosene lamps harmful to both their health and the environment.

ZTE CTO of government and enterprise business in the Middle East and Africa region Wang Yiwen said, “ZTE’s cooperation with governments and businesses throughout Africa is providing both economic and social benefits across the region. We are helping African countries maximise the power of their local resources and use renewable energy in a number of innovative ways.”
