Gigawatt Global has a rich pipeline of renewable energy projects, providing solar, wind and hydroelectricity, mostly in Africa. We delivered the first utility-scale solar electricity interconnection under the White House Power Africa program (in Rwanda), and were honored by the US State Department as a finalist for the Secretary of State’s ACE awards in Corporate Excellence/Sustainability. We opened our first field in the US, in Georgia, in June of 2016.
