This investment was made when British International Investment was named CDC Group.
Lekela Power is a power platform which will eventually own over 700 megawatts of wind and solar energy installed capacity across Africa. The initial three projects, Khobab, Loeriesfontein and Noupoort, are all located in the Northern Cape of South Africa and will deliver a combined 360 megawatts of wind energy capacity.
Since 2012, we’ve only invested in Africa and South Asia. Investments outside these regions are from our pre-2012 portfolio.
We have seven priority sectors. However, we continue to invest outside these sectors, largely in the most challenging regions, as new investment supporting any sector helps to underpin the private sector, and create jobs and livelihoods for people.
