|BioTherm Energy is an African renewable energy development platform. It is one of South Africa’s leading renewable energy developers and has three operational wind and solar projects allocated under the SA Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers (REIPPP) Program. With the company having recently secured four Zambian PPA’s as well as being shortlisted in the Ugandan Get Fit solar facility, it is actively expanding its activities throughout the rest of the continent, focusing on wind and solar project development, financing, construction and operations.
Founded in 2003, BioTherm Energy’s objectives were initially focused on the development of gas and waste heat cogeneration projects. The company has transformed itself into an African renewable energy development platform and independent power producer. It was in 2008, when Denham Capital, an energy and commodities-focused global private equity fund, with US$ 7.9 billion under management, invested and committed capital into the business in order to build and acquire a pipeline for renewable energy projects across the African continent.
