The Pele Energy Group is home to three operating companies: Pele Green Energy,

Knowledge Pele and Pele Natural Energy. Founded in 2009, Pele’s mission is to play a leadership role in the transformation of the economy and society through knowledge and power.


To this end, Pele Green Energy is a renewable energy IPP (independent power producer);

Pele Natural Energy is a conventional fuels IPP and Knowledge Pele is a research and development implementation firm.


Indeed, the word ‘Pele’ means first or forward in Setswana and also denotes the central value of the Group: leadership. We understand leadership to be an action that is grounded in participation.

Therefore, we participate in the full value chain of activities that lead to the sustainable

supply of energy: project development, project finance, construction, operations and

community development.


‘We believe we can realise our own dreams and the collective aspiration for structural change in our lifetimes by remaining committed and pushing ourselves to the highest levels of excellence.’

– The Founders
