NEA (NEW ENERGY AFRICA), PAN-AFRICAN FROM THE START.

NEA (New Energy Africa) will first launch in Madagascar and Senegal. From these two locations, NEA will oversee and coordinate innovative energy projects that bolster both energy inclusion and local socio-economic growth.

IMPACTFUL PROJECTS AND OPERATIONS

In Madagascar, NEA Ambatolampy now operates a solar power plant with a 40 MW capacity and a 5mwh battery-storage capacity, making it the largest solar power station in the Indian Ocean.

NEA Menabe and NEA Sava, both of which are installations in rural districts across Madagascar, currently manage four innovative hybrid power plants with capacities ranging from 2 to 5 MW.
