The Company


THEnergy is a consultancy firm highly-specialized on microgrids/mini-grids and offgrid renewable energy.

We focus on commercial and finance solutions and also cover technical aspects in larger projects. We started in large-scale solar-diesel hybrid projects for the mining industry. Over time, we also have added smaller applications such as off-grid renewables for hotels/resorts and rural electrification.
