EIMS Africa’s expertise encompasses the full range of sector competencies required to maximise the performance of energy projects. This is undertaken by our diverse team and includes all aspects of technical, legal, contractual, financial, ESG and local community stakeholder management. Furthermore, these teams are supported by a dedicated business services and human resources team.
Our team has collectively delivered more than 2GW of renewable energy projects from financial close, through the construction phase and into successful operations across five continents (Europe, Africa, India, South America, and North America), and includes Wind; Solar PV and Solar Thermal technologies.
EIMS Africa is majority owned by the IDEAS Fund, which is managed by African Infrastructure Investment Managers (Pty) Ltd.
The original EIMS Africa management team was formed by AIIM in 2011, as part of the first round of bidding under the South African REIPPP and went on to successfully manage the financial close, construction and the long-term operation of three Bid Window 1 projects.
Further success in REIPPPP’s Bid Window 2 and Bid Window 4 resulted in rapid growth and resulted in the decision, in 2018, to consolidate these various renewable assets under a single, dedicated renewable energy company.
EIMS Africa is focused on growing the project portfolio in the rest of Africa, diversifying to include bilateral projects with private off-takers and the adoption of an increasing range new storage technologies.
