We are a renewable power generation company which delivers utility-scale projects across Africa. Our goal is to deliver sustainable, reliable and competitively-priced power through taking wind and solar projects from mid or late-stage development into long-term operation. Delivering this is critical for many countries in Africa but presents a number of significant hurdles.

Lekela was founded in 2015 to address these challenges. We draw on decades of energy experience held by our management team, and the heritage of our founder shareholders, Actis and Mainstream Renewable Power.

Our vision is to build an organisation that offers best-in-class delivery of clean power in African countries. Today, our portfolio includes over 1,300 MW of projects in Egypt, Ghana, Senegal and South Africa.

Central to our strategy is a focus on creating long-term value for the communities where we operate. We want to make a positive impact that lasts for generations in these communities. Beyond the provision of renewable power and employment, we also focus on promoting education, enterprise and environmental initiatives.

Mission & Values

Mission:

Energising Africa’s sustainable future

Vision:

Lekela’s ultimate vision is to deliver long-term and sustainable benefits for African countries and communities through clean, reliable power.

Build success on a foundation of integrity

We’re here for the long term and must earn the trust of our customers, partners and stakeholders. We do this by acting with integrity; balancing the needs of stakeholders, being honest with partners, and following through on our promises.

We embrace diversity

We operate in diverse markets and therefore we reflect this in what we do as a company. There is no one-size-fits-all approach and so we always value, respect and invite alternative perspectives.

We enjoy the way we work together

We foster a supportive and collaborative working environment. We achieve our goals by working together and empowering each other to deliver.

We turn ideas into megawatts

In fast moving markets, we must adapt quickly and have the persistence to get our projects done and meet the needs of our stakeholders.

We are passionate about the benefits of energising Africa

What we do matters, so we do it well. We believe it is right that we transition to low-cost, low-carbon power generation and we are passionate about the benefits of renewable energy.

For our environment, later is not an option

We have a responsibility to think big and act now to protect the climate and environment. That means being ambitious, acting decisively, working hard, and delivering on our commitments.
