Clean, dependable Energy for All Africans

Monetizing Gas Africa has evolved since its creation in 2014 as a standard midstream gas infrastructure developer and operator into a more diversified power and energy infrastructure company. In step with the entire world’s pursuit of a “net zero” carbon energy economy by 2050, we help reduce coal, oil, diesel and HFO-based power with gas, providing the benefit of a two-thirds emissions reduction and a boost to renewables through balancing intermittency. 

Our team is composed of Africans and career “Africanists”, headquartered in South Africa. Our preferred role is as Project Developer in collaboration with IPPs, fuel providers, EPCs, banks and equity investors. We also seek partnership with renewable energy developers who agree on the sense of working synergistically, through hybrid project design or other forms of association. We are as comfortable working on water as we are on land, and in most respects prefer marine technologies. 

On the Energy Transition page of this site, please read our analysis of this global project from an African perspective. We call for a balanced understanding of the development needs across Africa in the climate change context. Approximately two-thirds of Africans do not enjoy access to electricity – reliable or otherwise. This energy poverty is a source of disease, malnutrition, unemployment and social ills. Further, the equivalent of 10 million barrels a day of oil are consumed by Africans burning wood for cooking and heating, with fire risk and resulting smoke inhalation a major health detriment. Simply moving from burning wood to gas is a huge step in cleaning the African energy system {source: International Gas Union}.

The MGA enterprise consists of two companies: one US (Delaware) corporation and one a South African Pty Ltd. This enables us to work in and through whichever entity is best suited to a given context. The South African company was recently acquired by The MacAlister Group & Associates, a consulting and advisory company which has done work for various clients since 2014, and shares will soon be made available to B-BBEE investors for the co-ownership of Monetizing Gas Africa (Pty) Ltd. 

While enjoying a wide network and industry recognition, we are always seeking fresh contacts and the exploration of common interests.
