With the vision of Lighting up Africa one community at a time, GENESIS ENERGY GROUP (GENESIS) is a leading energy infrastructure developer and climate impact investor that is driving positive social, economic, and environmental impact across the African continent. Headquartered in London with presence throughout Africa, GENESIS focuses on development and management of energy projects and facilities. The company provides a range of financial and project-based professional services, including, but not limited to:
● Energy Infrastructure Development, Financing, Construction and Operations Management;
● Solar photovoltaic (PV) and Battery Storage Solutions, including Hybrid Systems;

The corporate objective is to respond to energy disparities (energy poverty) which is rampant throughout the African continent, creating a catalyst for causing slowed infrastructural development, negative economic growth, and poor human capital development. Roughly two decades ago, GENESIS ENERGY GROUP was one of the few companies on the continent to conceive the notion that all Africans should have easy access to affordable and clean electricity. To follow on this perception, GENESIS invested its own funds in the first independent power project of 10MW capacity in Guinea Bissau. Thereafter, signed a Power Purchase Agreement for fast-track implementation in Sao Tomé and Principe.
Following the success of these pioneering projects, GENESIS ENERGY GROUP secured the infrastructural management of one of the largest residential mini-grids in Nigeria – the 15MW substation in Banana Island-Ikoyi, Lagos. As a result of the company’s positive project development and commissioning, its footprint grew exponentially over the years in West Africa, leading to the development and contracting of the first gas-fired 41MW Independent Power Project in Benin Republic. A further bigger success that the company prides itself with, is that of developing, financing and still operating the largest licensed off-grid clean power plant in Nigeria, the 84MW gas-fired distributed power project at NNPC’s Port Harcourt Refinery.
