Energy Solutions & Projects
Africa faces many challenges but carries huge opportunities that remains to be unlocked while it transitions to clean energy production. As of 2020, according to the Energy Progress Report 2022, 77% of people (600 million) in sub-Saharan Africa do not have access to electricity. However, Africa’s geographic diversity holds vast potential for solar and wind power, and its soils are home to many of the minerals and rare earths needed for the development of clean energy technologies.
One of the main factors limiting access to power is cost. Achieving electrification for everyone in sub-Saharan Africa would require investing at least $31 billion per year by 2030, according to the above mentioned report.
GENESIS ENERGY GROUP is committed to providing reliable, affordable, and environmental friendly energy solutions to replace expensive and dirty energy sources.
From natural gas, solar, hydro projects and many more, we currently have over 100MW of power generated from our operational assets with over 3GW in our development pipeline.
