Are you a start up?

As a start-up, you’ll be in the early stage of rolling out your clean tech project.

At the minimum you will have a prototype that has been tested in the relevant environment. You have a team and business experience.

At the other end of the scale, you’re still in the early stages and you need funding to further scale your operational business. Either way you’re solving for a cleaner, sustainable future for South Africa and Africa. We want to hear from you!

Are you a large scale energy project?

As a large-scale energy project, you’ll be a viable African infrastructure project (between 20 and 100 megawatts) requiring finance to get your project off the ground.

You will have passed feasibility studies, permitting and municipal buy in; have offtake agreements and know how many megawatts you’ll be putting into the grid.

You’re solving for a cleaner, sustainable future for South Africa and Africa. We want to hear from you!
