Innovation for sustainability
Mandulis Energy develops, owns and operates renewable energy projects in Africa. We started in Uganda, where we pioneered private sector led deployment of on-grid and off-grid renewable energy infrastructure.
Crucially, we are committed to creating and deploying new technologies and business models, to address the energy access "trilemma" by reconciling reliability, sustainability and affordability.
Deliver a triple top-line sustainable business that crystallizes the social, commercial and strategic value of the abundance of renewable energy resources across Sub-Saharan Africa, and leverages the commercial, policy and regulatory developments driving the transition to low carbon economies.
We build upon proven technologies, working closely with industry and academic partners globally, to adapt, improve and deliver cutting-edge cleantech solutions for emerging markets.
MEET THE TEAM
Our approach to sustainability is that it is integral to our corporate strategy and to the way in which we operate our business.
Co-Founder & Managing Director
❖ Thermochemical conversion of solid biomass in a low oxygen environment, into a synthetic gas (syngas), with a biochar by-product
❖ Syngas is cleaned to remove impurities and used to drive a gas or steam turbine to generate electricity
❖ Biochar is used to make briquettes, a clean-burning alternative to charcoal, coal or wood
❖ Proprietary platform that empowers engineers with actionable insights and no-code AI software tools, for managing both the performance and health of our renewable energy assets, remotely and at scale
❖ Modularity Grid (www.modularitygrid.com)
“An exemplary model of how governments, private sector and NGOs, can join forces and work effectively to deliver climate resilience and poverty alleviation”
– Emilie Poisson | ACTED | Africa Director
REPARLE (Renewable Energy Powering Agriculture and Rural Livelihood Enhancement) is an off-grid rural electrification project in Uganda, led by the French NGO ACTED, and Mandulis Energy, with support from USAID's Power Africa program.
Developing 8MW (16 sites x 500kW) where we use gasification to turn agricultural residues into a source of baseload electricity for microgrids in rural farming communities.
This uniquely integrated solution, addresses the perennial global challenges, energy security, food security, climate resilience and poverty alleviation.
EARTH ENERGY is our 20MW grid-tied biomass power project in Gulu, Northern Uganda, which is backed by KfW, African Development Bank and Power Africa.
Once construction is completed, this will be the first and largest grid-tied biomass gasification power plant in Africa.
