GDS International is a subsidiary of Générale du Solaire (independent solar energy producer) responsible for the group’s activities abroad and particularly in Africa. GDS International undertakes solar projects, with a specialisation in off-grid projects: small self-consumption power stations for private individuals, or small networks with storage solutions to provide electricity to villages lacking energy access. The company thus contributes to the rise of a new zero-carbon and inclusive economic development model for the African continent.
