- About NXT Grid:
Mini-grids are small (<100kWp) independent electricity networks, generally powered by renewable energy sources, which are expected to play a pivotal role in the race to deliver universal energy access in the coming decade. NXT Grid is a scalable B2B mini-grid rental company, creating a unique platform with the following key (on-line and off-line) components, providing the solutions to solve today’s growth challenges within the mini-grid sector:
(i) NXT Grid works in partnership with local entrepreneurs whom we support and train to become professional mini-grid developers.
(ii) Our proprietary on-line tool chain (“NXT Platform”) assists and supports developers throughout the life-cycle of a mini-grid. From the use of AI algorithms, satellite data to high grade and design new sites, remote operations & maintenance monitoring, all the way through to an on-line payment system to ensure full payment collection.
(iii) With our rental offering in combination with procurement support with key leading suppliers of mini-grid components, including in-country stock, maintenance, assistance and training, we ensure our local partners build sustainable and profitable businesses.
The Head of Sales & Customers is responsible for the overall relationship management with (potential) customers. This responsibility starts with the search of new customers (developers), convincing them of NXT Grid’s value proposition and entering into (framework) agreements. Once agreements are entered into, the Head of Sales & Customers (with his/her) team of account managers) remains responsible for the day-2- day interface with customers.
