Providing low cost, low-carbon, renewable energy solutions for mining and industrial companies across Africa

Working in partnership with Total Eren with a right to invest between up to 49% into the co-developed projects, we have a fast-growing pipeline of projects approaching 1 GW

    Inaugurated in 2018, the 15 MW Essakane solar PV project in Burkina Faso is one of the largest hybrid solar-thermal plants in the world; a project which won the 2019 TSM Excellence Award a year later
  • Tharisa
    The 40 MWp solar PV project will supply electricity to the South African PGM mine on a minimum 15-year PPA on ‘take-or-pay’ basis, contributing to the company’s goals to become carbon neutral in 2050
  • First Quantum Minerals
    This 430 MW project at FQM’s copper-gold mine is one of the most ambitious renewable energy projects in Africa, complementing and expanding Zambia’s existing renewable energy capacity, utilising both solar and wind resources
  • Karo
    Solar power will be provided to the newly constructed PGM mine in Zimbabwe at the initial installed capacity of 30 MW, part of a broader project of 300 MW to be developed over the mine’s evolution.



Our trading platform, Etana, will provide the opportunity to enhance and revolutionise the energy mix across South Africa by supplying greener power for commercial and industrial requirements.

Chariot has broadened both its exposure and approach to the renewable energy sector within South Africa, in acquiring an interest in Etana which holds an electricity trading licence and which is already testing the platform.

Etana’s objective is to deliver unique renewable energy mix solutions at competitive prices to help address the significant power requirements across South Africa with the licence opening up access to a range of high-volume off-takers including municipal, industrial and retail customers.


We continue to advance with our objective of building and delivering a substantial renewables energy pipeline and developing some of the largest sustainable power projects in Africa.

Renewable Water Business

Chariot’s water business is focused on providing clean water solutions using renewable energy.

Utilising a modular, scalable reverse osmosis technology that can be powered 100% by solar energy to produce desalinated water, a proof-of-concept project at the largest wind farm in Djibouti has now been commissioned.

This project will provide 50m3 potable water per day to local communities for the next 20 years and the team is looking to build out this offering into further jurisdictions on the continent.
