Imagination inspires action.
We’ll help you get it done.


As one of Africa’s leading financial partners in the energy sector, we expect to commit funding to a number of exciting energy projects over the next 24 months.

Imagination inspires action as Policy change fast tracks business value.

Businesses are now allowed to produce up to 100MW of power without the need for a generation license from NERSA (The National Energy Regulator of SA). It is a new era that marks an estimated R75bn of construction sector related economic activity that could potentially be unlocked over the next few years.

The announcement on 10 June 2021 was a game changer on many levels. Absa, as one of Africa’s leading financial partners in the energy sector, expects to commit funding to a number of exciting energy projects over the next 24 months.
