Established in March 2012, Cennergi is a 50:50 joint venture formed between Exxaro, the second largest producer of coal in South Africa, and Tata Power, India’s largest integrated power company. Cennergi was created to capitalise on the multiple opportunities available to independent power producers (IPP) to serve the expanding energy markets in southern Africa.

Cennergi, based in South Africa, will focus on the development, ownership, operation, maintenance, acquisition and management of electricity generation assets in South Africa, Botswana and Namibia. The initial project pipeline focuses on renewable energy projects in South Africa and Cennergi’s strategy is to create a balanced portfolio of generation assets.
