Producing and selling local and sustainable energy

Our renewable energy capacity must be increased in order to transition to economies that serve present and future generations alike. With energy-intensive industrial and residential sectors in Belgium, results in this direction will only be achieved by changing technical and social norms.

Belgian Eco Energy (BEE) is an integrated energy com- pany, which specialises in the development, construction, and operation of renewable energy projects, as well as the supply of locally generated and sustainable gas and electricity to industrial customers at a very competitive price.

KOIS invested in BEE in 2012, two years after it was created by three founders with extensive experience in the energy sector. BEE has the potential to help Belgium transition towards renewable energy sources, contributing to the country’s efforts to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 2030 and reach the climate change target set by the EU.

miDiagnostics: creating the future of diagnostic care

miDiagnostics: creating the future of diagnostic care

Today, ensuring a fast diagnosis of the high number of patients to avoid transmission is critical. Unfortunately, diagnoses are highly time-consuming and hard to get for people in more remote areas. In fact, most accurate diagnostics require drawing blood, sample preparation & lab work. This can result in a long time between testing & treatment. It also means patients cannot be followed-up at home and that carrying out fast & accurate testing in the field is very difficult.

Preventing family separation in Indonesia

Preventing family separation in Indonesia

In Indonesia, approximately 2.15M children live without their parents. Yet, 90% of them have at least one parent alive. The underlying reasons are numerous and complex, but they mostly relate to poverty and lack of access to social assistance.

A Development Impact Bond could help bring a solution to this issue. In this scope, KOIS supported two foundations with the structuring of a DIB to test an innovative, cost-efficient and scalable model of family separation prevention.

Raising capital to improve healthcare via access to clean and cheap energy

For too long, a lack of reliable power has prevented people in remote and rural communities from accessing the healthcare they need. KOIS is designing an innovative financing mechanism to scale up UNDP’s Solar for Health initiative. In fact, S4H helps governments in providing clean energy access for health facilities by installing PV systems.
