Better power. Higher impact.

Tembo Power Holdings (“Tembo”) is a company founded in 2015 with the aim of developing run of river hydropower projects in Sub-Saharan Africa. Current power portfolio is made of 13 projects, with an expected total capacity of circa 300MW.

It expanded in 2020 in the voluntary carbon offsets market in the same region, where it now develops and commercializes carbon credits, mostly from forestry and cookstoves projects.

Both business lines benefit from talented individuals with extensive credentials in their respective fields, innovative financing solutions, and state-of-the-art technological tools to deliver true impact to Sub-Saharan Africa.

The Company is backed by private investors, making the traditional support from international donors through grants and debt truly additional.

I am thrilled to join Tembo as a Worldwide Ambassador for the company. The two main issues Tembo is addressing in Sub-Saharan Africa – developing remote areas through electrification by using clean power, and preventing deforestation to protect fauna & flora by developing carbon offset rights – are very dear to me, and collaborating with Tembo is a way to increase my contribution to the planet’s welfare and make an impact. I believe it is our inherent obligation to redeem ourselves from the damage we’ve caused to our planet
