We are a homegrown Dubai company – one of the youngest and most dynamic markets for renewable energy developments. With our headquarters based in the UAE, we are in a good place to capitalise on the region’s abundance of PV solar opportunities while playing a pivotal role in accelerating solar deployment in other growth markets.
Many of these key markets are in MENA and sub-Saharan Africa, both growing economies seeking to diversify their energy mix supply.
In Africa, we have opened satellite offices in the continent’s largest economies - Nigeria and South Africa - to be closer to the areas we are active in. We have also built strong ties ‘on the ground’ across this region, forging a reliable network of over 14 trusted partners to draw specialist local expertise from.
In MENA and sub-Saharan Africa, we have a portfolio of over 1.5 GW under development or at the planning stage.
In Dubai, UAE, we are delivering the DP World Solar Power Programme, largest distributed solar project in the Middle East under the recently launched "Shams Dubai" net-metering initiative.
Our pipeline on the African continent exceeds 600 MW, and we are planning to deploy 150 to 200 MW per annum over the next three years.
In Nigeria, our utility-scale project portfolio totals 260 MW across the Sokoto, Kebbi and Kaduna states. The first, in Sokoto, is targeted for financial close early 2018. It is one of the first 14 projects awarded a PPA by the Nigerian Government.
Phanes Group pursues a distinct focus on the Middle East & Africa and Latin America Markets, where our business model has the most potential for economic and social impact.
Landmark emerging markets projects provide proof-of-concept for Phanes Group's holistic approach to solar - that combining financing & engineering expertise is the key to making a project investable, and that tight coordination across the project value chain gives the agility and speed necessary to adapt to markets where the path has not yet been set.
From offices in Dubai, Switzerland, and South Africa, Phanes Group now maintains a portfolio spanning five geographies worldwide including Chile, the Dominican Republic, the GCC, and Sub-Saharan Africa, with over 70 megawatts in executed solar-capacity and a further gigawatt under development.
Key projects include the Caribbean's largest solar PV project, as well as the largest distributed solar project in the Middle East.
