OUR OWNERSHIP

Do you know that we are a 100% Botswana-owned and operated entity? 

ESTABISHLED IN 2022

In 2022, AltGen opened an office in Botswana to further our reach within the African renewable energy, and particularly in the solar energy market. AltGen Botswana (PTY) LTD is a majority Botswana citizen and female-owned entity. 

This beautiful landlocked country is home to the largest elephant population globally and has one of the largest salt pans in the world. Roughly 40% of the country is protected and dedicated to national parks, concessions, and wildlife management reserves. It is home to the Okavango Delta, a vast inland river that is an oasis for the local wildlife all year round. Botswana has an abundant amount of sunshine, with some of the world’s highest solar irradiation levels. This makes solar energy an extremely viable option for the country, with other forms of renewable energy including wind power and bioenergy.

The installed amount of solar capacity grew from 2MW to 6MW between 2012 and 2021, and in 2022 the Botswana Ministry of Energy announced plans to construct an additional 795MW of energy generation, with 61% of that intended to be renewable energy.

TRACK RECORD

AltGen Botswana has undertaken to oversee HR strategies and employment solutions for 2 of the first IPP solar projects in Botswana which include Shakawe and Bobonong.
 

AltGen actively contributes to job creation in the communities in which we operate, through employment that is facilitated by connections between AltGen and the Village District Councils (VDCs) and the local and regional Chiefs. We offer a comprehensive 360-degree EoR service to our clients. This includes developing and managing agreements and contracts, HR management, and payroll. With a local footprint we are able to facilitate payments to local suppliers for various expenses such as hardware, travel/taxi, and accommodation.

Did you know that we offer these services in Namibia and South Africa?

The recruitment process facilitated by AltGen was really smooth & I'd recommend their services to anyone looking for a job in the Renewable Space. Everything was handled with so much care & Khushboo Dabeesing (the consultant I dealt with) really did go above & beyond for me. Thank you AltGen team!

Had a great experience with the AltGen team. I sent Kerryn, a LinkedIn DM in March 2023 telling her I am looking for opportunities in the Renewable Energy Sector. She asked for my CV and told me she'll keep in touch. August 2023, she gave me a call about an opportunity she thinks would be perfect for me. Her and the AltGen team set up my interviews and other Recruitment related matters. And I got my dream job. Thank you to the AltGen team.
