At the frontier of bringing renewable energy to emerging markets

About us

Gigawatt Global Coöperatief U.A. is a multinational renewable energy company focused on the development and management of utility-scale solar fields in emerging markets.

Gigawatt Global has a rich pipeline of renewable energy projects, providing solar, wind and hydro electricity, mostly in Africa. We delivered the first utility-scale solar electricity interconnection under the White House Power Africa program (in Rwanda), and were honored by the US State Department as a finalist for the Secretary of State’s ACE awards in Corporate Excellence/Sustainability. We opened our first field in the US, in Georgia, in June of 2016.

Gigawatt Global’s founder was nominated for the Nobel Peace Prize in 2015 and 2021. More...

Palestinian Authority

We have received our first licence for a grid-connected solar project in the PA. This 6 MW solar PV project is located in Ramadeen south of Hebron. More projects are awaiting approval.

Kenya

We are developing two grid-scale solar PV plants in Kenya. They are located in Narok and Kwale county.

Liberia

We are developing a 20MW solar project in Montserrado county. This project is slated to be the first IPP in the greater Monrovia area.

South Sudan

As they transition to renewables, S. Sudan’s first solar installation will be our 10MW solar PV + storage project in the capital, Juba, in advanced stages of development.

Mini-Grids, Burundi

Roughly 86% of Burundians live in rural areas and a mere 1% of them have access to electricity. We have made feasibility studies for 14 villages across Burundi to electrify them. We also implemented a solar street lighting program in several cities in the country.

Mozambique

We are developing 15 MW solar PV in Niassa province in the North of Mozambique to get renewable energy to the newly developed grid.

Zambia

We are developing Zambia’s first hybrid solar PV and Wind Farm in the center of the country adding 71 MW to their energy pool.

Ethiopia

We are developing 10 solar and wind projects, each 10 MW in size at 10 different university campuses across the country.
