Tailor-made Solutions for the African Market

Profit from reliable power at low energy costs.

Your energy in good hands

Rising electricity prices, growing demand, weak grids and power cuts across Africa make a stable and secure supply of energy hard to come by.

But through extensive data analysis, our experienced, international team develops a range of solutions addressing the challenges faced by governments, electricity providers, grid operators and industrial consumers across the African continent. Our bespoke solutions are made to meet your individual needs through standalone photovoltaic, PV battery storage and Hybrid systems.

Solar parks from a single source: we arrange contracts and approvals

In addition to the on-site realisation of photovoltaic systems, BayWa r.e. takes care of all contracts and project rights required for the system's construction and operation. In addition to the lease contract, building permits and grid connection, we take responsibility for the ongoing technical and commercial operations management and purchase the required insurance policies. We also have extensive experience in arranging long-term financing for solar parks.

Your reliable partner for your solar project 

Are you looking for a strong, experienced partner to develop a utility-scale PV plant, battery storage solution or PV hybrid system?

We are a global renewable energy project developer based in Germany, with strong financial stability from our parent company, BayWa AG. We offer high quality energy solutions, with a strong focus on solar power. We have the international experience and intricate knowledge to meet the needs of each client’s unique requirements and each country’s legal and technical rules and regulations. Wherever you are based in Africa, we understand the local markets and ensure you get the best out of your project.

We will be your partner in any or every part of the project, through development and analysis of the initial idea, financing, component supply and turnkey construction to selling on the power produced and delivering operational services and maintenance.

Invest in the sun – maximum ROIs through highest standard project security

Turnkey handover to investors

Take advantage of our many years of expertise. We specialise in the setup of turnkey photovoltaic systems in utility-scale range. Our experienced project managers make sure the solar park meets the highest industry standards.

Certified processes guarantee superior quality – and a high yield

In 2016, BayWa r.e. was the first company in the solar sector to be awarded the VDE certificate for the installation of standardised photovoltaic power plants. In 2019 we established a Quality and Environmental Management System for project development, project management, engineering and construction of photovoltaic systems and associated infrastructure. As a result, we have been awarded the ISO certifications 9001 and 14001 by TÜV SÜD Management Service GmbH. We aim to make the best possible use of the available land through site-specific system engineering and the employment of high-quality technology throughout, both of which are prerequisites for optimal yields in the long term.

Training and local capacity building measures – a win/win situation

Working with local developers, EPC companies and partners for Operation & Maintenance management has always been a key element of our projects’ success. We are always open to sharing our knowledge with our local partners and clients to our mutual benefit.
