Our Story

A renewable energy company is born

Energy Services

The work we love and do

Sparked in 2007 from the idea that Africa needs to use its rich, mineral resource base to participate in global value chains, Mitochondria Energy Company was created to empower the continent to provide sustainable energy services and resource-based industrialisation to meet the needs of her people.

We provide off-grid, decentralised, distributed, on-site and at-point-of-use energy solutions, as well as grid-connected alternatives for those looking to optimise their current energy consumption.






Mito in the headlines

“The future of energy generation in Africa is distributed, it is decentralised, it is on-site, it is where the energy is consumed. The platinum fuel cell is the ultimate decentralising, distributing technology.”
