THE TEAM

RESA is an established group of companies that provides a wealth of proven experience and expertise to the energy and infrastructure industry in Africa and abroad.  The firm builds on its expertise earned across the full value chain of infrastructure projects: from business introduction, project development, project execution to O&M services.  The company has acquired this experience through its projects over the past years and working as a team in other projects prior to the formation of RESA.  This kernel stems from the development and implementation of energy projects where the team has been working in close cooperation over a period of more than 8 years. During this time the team has developed its expertise and ability to deliver its services under the most dynamic and complicated circumstances.

Based on this practical working experience in the field and combined with the prior experience of the individuals, the partners set up RESA Energy in 2009 to make use of this skill set in the market with a dedicated solutions orientated outlook with a broader mandate to include energy, infrastructure and remediation.

Members of RESA have been involved in, and achieved, several significant industry firsts:

  • First commercial Solar Power Plant in South Africa.

  • First CPV plant in Africa.

  • First Bond issue for renewable energy in South Africa and Africa.

  • First Hydrogen Fuel Cell programme in South Africa.

  • Founding membes of the South African Photovoltaic Association (SAPVIA).

  • Special advisor to the South African government.

  • Debt structuring of the largest gas project in Southern Africa.
