About Us

Globeleq is an experienced power generation company that operates and actively develops power projects across Africa. The company is committed to providing safe, reliable and cost-effective power to the grid and will add significant power generation capacity over the next decade - significantly contributing to the social and economic growth on the continent. 

Since it was founded in 2002, Globeleq has become a power industry leader by operating or acquiring interest in multiple power facilities across the world.  The company’s experience spans an array of technologies and geographic locations, which provides Globeleq with a unique perspective and strong foundation to develop new capacity in Africa.

Today, under the joint ownership of CDC (70%) and Norfund (30%), Globeleq is focused exclusively on Africa and is uniquely positioned to invest in, develop and operate power projects across this region.


Private sector participation is essential to meet energy investment needs in full, but mobilising private investors and capital will require a concerted effort to reduce political and regulatory uncertainties.
