About 1 Energy

We pride ourselves on engaging as energy partners, understanding our clients’ needs and crafting bespoke energy solutions. We understand the practical challenges and complexities involved in delivering major energy projects in remote locations and in different countries around the world.

Minimise energy consumption

We also understand the heavy costs of running diesel generators around the clock in remote locations, therefore we tailor our solutions to minimise your energy consumption and maximise the benefits of less costly, clean and sustainable solar power.

Solutions advice

Our solutions, advice and performance projections are based on sound engineering, actual equipment specifications and the characteristics of each site – not on wishful thinking and sales hype.

Monitor results

We monitor results from our installed base of projects to track actual performance, so that we can constantly improve our designs and solution specifications. With a full range of solutions and services, our offering is backed up by our own expertise and our close collaboration with selected technology partners and investors.

Vicki Tollman

““We are proud to work with partners and suppliers such as 1Energy, who share our ethos and want to work together to make travel matter for our people, the planet and for wildlife””

Anton PostSanctuary Retreats MD

“Sanctuary Retreats, operating three 5 star lodges in the Okavango Delta namely Chief’s Camp, Stanley’s Camp and Baines’ Camp, have converted the old generator powered properties to solar powered energy systems as designed and installed by 1Energy. We are very satisfied with the solar operation and can recommend their services. We have further used them for the installation of heat pumps and the necessary electrical reticulation at our lodge, Olonana, Masai Mara, Kenya. ”
