Our Story

Globeleq is powering Africa’s growth by developing and operating utility-scale power plants across the continent.

Founded in 2002, Globeleq is a power industry leader, owning, developing, operating or acquiring interests in multiple power facilities worldwide. Since 2015, Globeleq has solely focused on the African continent. By implementing various generation technologies in different geographic locations, Globeleq has a unique perspective and strong foundation for developing new capacity and building a sustainable portfolio of energy projects.

Globeleq aims to be the trusted, reliable, and committed partner of choice within the African private power industry. To achieve this we are planning to add significant MWs of new power generation over the next decade with a focus on the energy transition to cleaner energy sources. In addition, through our country and community operations, Globeleq significantly contributes to the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

With the support and expertise of our staff operating out of our London head office, our regional offices in Abidjan, Cairo, Cape Town, Dar es Salaam, Douala, Johannesburg, Maputo and Nairobi, and our 16 power plants located in Cameroon, Côte d’Ivoire, Egypt, Kenya, Mozambique, South Africa and Tanzania, we currently generate 1,769 MW; are constructing 485 MW and have another 2,000 MW of new power projects in development. Globeleq has an experienced management team with an on-the-ground presence and a full suite of world-class in-house expertise across multiple technologies.

Globeleq partners with organisations that have complementary capabilities and operating skills, adding to, rather than duplicating, our key expertise and experience.

Globeleq adopts a partnership approach with governments, regulators, utilities, and community-based organisations and strives to understand the unique needs of each country where we develop and operate power projects.

This enables us to customise our approach: Choosing the best technology and infrastructure design; while aligning our social, economic and enterprise development strategies to power the region, and in turn, its growth.
