Enernet Global acquires KPS Power Africa

ATRDec621Enernet Global, a distributed energy service company that aims to decarbonise the world’s supply chains, has acquired KPS Power Africa (KPSPA) to accelerate presence in African mining

Enernet’s global footprint enables it to provide tailored energy solutions for mining, commercial, industrial, remote community and utility customers across its operations in Australia, the Philippines, the Caribbean and Sub-Saharan Africa. KPSPA finances, builds, owns and operates hybrid power plants for the mining sector in Africa. The transaction provides Enernet with a portfolio of projects and expert team to rapidly scale the business.

“The combination of KPS Power Africa’s deep roots in mining and power in Africa combined with Enernet’s world-leading expertise on renewable hybrid plants and competitive capital enables us to bring a unique solution to mines across Africa,” said Paul Matthews, Enernet and KPSPA’s CEO. “Mines are under increasing pressure to reduce scope one, two and three emissions and their CEOs must report to investors and the market on their ambitions to reduce CO2. Together, we finance, build and operate cheaper, cleaner and more reliable power solutions for customers across sub-Saharan Africa.

Enernet and KPSPA deploy distributed on- and off-grid generation projects that integrate renewable energy, battery storage, cogeneration and existing thermal or grid supply. Selling energy and services through power purchase agreements, systems are delivered at no capital cost to customers and tailored to their specific energy needs. This lowers costs, adds energy resilience and independence, and dramatically reduces emissions mines in Africa.
