JUWI South Africa

Accelerating the African Energy Transition

In Africa, harnessing renewable energy sources plays a crucial role in combatting energy poverty. It allows us to deliver essential energy services while safeguarding both human health and our precious ecosystems. Moreover, it paves the way for economic growth, supporting development and industrialization.

JUWI South Africa is committed to spearheading and expediting this vital energy transition across the African continent. Since opening our doors in 2011 we have grown our team from less than 5 people to over 130. We have also have a strong focus on helping communities and have created over 4000 work opportunities during the construction of our plants.

Committed to inclusivity

We take immense pride in our partnership with Reatile Group, a prominent black-owned industrialist company. They hold shares in our construction and O&M vehicles, showcasing our dedication to fostering diversity and transformation across all facets of our operations. We are steadfast in our commitment to exceeding not only the minimum stipulations set by government procurement but also the expectations of our private clients.

Our Services

What we do

We help Independent Power Producers (IPPs) as well as Commercial and Industrial clients bring their wind, solar and hybrid projects to life.

Project Development

We develop Wind, Solar PV, and Hybrid power plants.

Our Project Development scope covers the vast majority of tasks that need to take place before a power plant can enter the construction phase, including:

  • Site identification and screening studies
  • Landowner negotiations
  • Resource measurement campaign
  • Technical development and permitting
  • Investor selection and tender submission
  • Final pre-construction development

Since 2011 we have developed over 800 MW of Wind and 1,500 MW of Solar PV Projects to "Ready-To-Bid” status with many more megawatts on-route. Furthermore, several of the projects we have developed are in construction or successful operation. These are a testament to JUWI’s commitment to delivering high-quality renewable energy solutions.
