Our History

GreenWish was founded in 2010 to support energy transition investments. From 2010 to 2014, the company has executed a number of financial and asset management mandates in the energy transition sector for a diversified base of clients: independent power producers, utilities, pensions funds, sovereign funds, infrastructure funds and family offices. In 2014, GreenWish expanded to Sub-Saharan Africa with direct development and investment in renewable energy projects. GreenWish successfully completed the development, financing and commissioning of the first solar Independent Power Producer project in West Africa, the 20 MW Senergy 2 solar PV project in Senegal. GreenWish is also pioneer of the energy transition for the telecom sector with a first long term contract with Orange in Africa in DRCongo followed by Sierra Leone. The group is also developing the GreenWish Smart Villages, an innovative decentralised infrastructure platform fostering access to electricity, digital, public and private services to underseved population in a PPP model.
