Developer —

KOKO is a renewable fuel utility – uniting technology, infrastructure, policy and capital to replace deforestation-based charcoal. The technology & operational footprint is similar in sophistication of mobile telco, driving national-scale energy transition away from deforestation fuel. Subscribers are growing 10k / week and Carbon markets are used to solve the affordability gap, by enabling major consumer discounts on hardware and fuel.
