Story 15 – Riccardo Ridolfi

This week, Will is joined by Riccardo Ridolfi, co-founder and CEO at Equatorial Power, a company pioneering off-grid electrification in rural Africa. Riccardo talks about his transition from being a finance attorney into the energy sector, a move which was driven by a desire to use his knowledge of capital markets and infrastructure funding to do good for people. He also discusses how energy access is the best enabler for development, and how his company aims to catalyse local economies with energy-enabled infrastructure.
