  • Sturdee Energy has commissioned the Shakawe (1MW) and Bobonong (3MW) solar plants in Botswana.
  • Soventix was appointed EPC contractor for both projects. 
  • These projects are the first renewable energy IPPs in Botswana and represent a major milestone in the country’s renewable energy journey.

Under the  executed PPAs, Sturdee Energy will sell clean electrical energy to Botswana Power Corporation for 25 years, and  the projects are expected to produce over 10 000 MWh in their first year of operation.

The two projects were awarded in 2019 and entailed an investment of approximately US $ 5.5 million and contribute direct and indirect to supply of low-cost renewable energy and citizen employment.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
