About Sahay Solar Engineering

Sustainable access to water and electricity for everyone!

This motivation led to the founding of Sahay Solar Engineering UG (limited liability) as an association of a group of experienced German engineers and development experts in the field of solar and renewable energies. We have set ourselves the personal vision to promote the expansion of solar energy on the African market in order to improve the living conditions of many people and create the basis for sustainable growth in Africa.

Our Team

Team Sahay Solar Engineering

The company was founded in Germany with the aim of becoming one of the leading players in the growing African solar market and thus closing the gap between globally available knowledge and technologies and the unmet demand for solar energy solutions at the private and institutional level.

All founding partners have long-year experience in the development sector with a focus on solar and renewable energy (RE) projects and related consulting services and have joined forces to focus specifically on the development of the African RE market. This decision was based on the extensive experience the founders gained during previous work assignments as well as in training and capacity building activities, particularly in Ethiopia.

Sahay Solar’s main activities include feasibility studies, technical analyses and related training and consulting services in the field of (off-grid) energy supply and water extraction using solar technology. In addition, Sahay Solar imports high-quality technical equipment and, together with locally trained specialists, implements off-grid power supply and solar pumping projects for international and local customers (e.g. NGOs) as well as government authorities.
