At Genesis Energy “Genesis”, we deliver a range of innovative and efficient energy solutions to customers across Africa.

We operate integrated oil, gas and electricity operations and provide strategic, high quality, and competitive services for the production, transmission and distribution of electric power.

Shining a light on our past

A decade ago, we were one of the few companies on the continent to believe that everyone should have easy access to affordable electricity.

Over the years we’ve followed our vision to light up Africa one community at a time, and in doing so, we’ve overcome numerous challenges to establish our rightful place in the energy sector.

We began by installing the first independent power project of 10MW capacity in Guinea Bissau over a decade ago. After that, we signed a 20MW Power Purchase Agreement for fast track implementation in Sao Tome and Prinicipe in 2007.

These two projects taught us the complexities of investing in different countries in Africa, and helped us develop essential project development and implementation competences.

Over the years, we’ve continued to grow our skills in conceptualising, designing, developing and constructing for sustainable commissioning and well structured power projects.

Our success in attracting foreign direct investments into multiple projects demonstrates our commercial appeal. And project by project, we’re achieving our aim of lighting up communities.

Our dream is to provide the light for children to do their homework by; to provide the power to run entrepreneurs’ factories; to ensure Governments have the energy to drive their nation forward.

We believe in Africa, and we intend to be the power behind its exciting future.
