Zimbabwe Renewable Energy Conference in Meikles Hotel Harare

The meeco Group has recently launched through its subsidiary OurSun Energy (Private) Ltd. its turnkey services and solutions into the blossoming Zimbabwean market. Lately, promising cooperation’s have been initiated in Zimbabwe with key partners such as BDO, part of the fifth largest accountancy network in the world and ZINWA, an entity wholly owned by the Government and mandated to manage all water resources of the country. The ZIMREC conference represents for meeco a further step towards the expansion of its clean energy activities in Zimbabwe.

ZIMREC is organised by Esther Mhiribidi & Associates, a Harare based company, which focuses on events to connect companies in the renewable energy industry. This conference aims at addressing clean energy challenges faced by a great variety of participants such as engineers, investors and governments. Occurring every August of the year, it represents a decisive event in Zimbabwe with the involvement of key governmental figures. This is a real place to exchange and deliberate about strategic and technical solutions in order to integrate the Zimbabwean economy with an energy system transition.

During those days, The meeco Group was able to present its projects of the last few months and the initial success within the Zimbabwean market through several Public Private Partnerships with public institutions such as ZINWA and also strategic partnerships with leading companies in sectors ranging from construction, advisory to finance.

Zimbabwe is currently experiencing an outstanding growth presenting huge potential for renewable energy applications, opportunities and investments. Moreover, the geographical situation, one of the highest radiation levels worldwide, makes the implementation of solar energy ideal. Simba Mhuriro, in charge at OurSun Energy (Private) Ltd, thinks that “ZIMREC is indeed the chance to get access to a valuable platform in order to vent ideas and develop networking opportunities in energy and power development sector as well as find solutions to accelerate the growth of the emerging Zimbabwean renewable energy.”

Oursun expects to realize in the course of the next five years from 50 to 100 MWp of solar projects via technical and advisory services. From now, the meeco Group looks forward to executing further projects as well as to building additional relationships in Zimbabwe and to share its experience at the next ZIMREC conference.
