The Revego Podcast Series

Ahead of the Revego Africa Energy Fund listing, we discuss the future of renewables as an investment theme, and Revego's investment case. Our panel includes experts from the industry and the Revego team, moderated by Chris Yelland, energy analyst and managing director of EE Business Intelligence.

How Africa can drive the global clean energy transition

Africa’s power and energy challenges – but abundance of renewable energy sources – also make it the continent best positioned to lead the transition to clean energy.

In this episode, the panel unpacks the concept of renewable energy – how it differs from other forms of energy, where it fits into the overall energy universe – but also discuss why renewables could be the solution for reducing the world’s dependence on fossil fuels as well as why Africa can drive that change.

Panellists: Abel Mjiyako, Chief Technical Officer at Revego Fund Managers and Dieter Matzner, a power and infrastructure consultant at Investec Bank

Building, owning and operating an independent power producer (IPP).
Independent power producers have a particularly relevant role to play in South Africa (and the rest of the continent), to both meet rising power demand and to do so in a way that has a minimal impact on the environment. In this episode, our panellists discuss the IPP landscape, the role they play in meeting energy demand and the specific requirements and challenges of operating an IPP.

Revego listing to give investors access to growing renewable sector.
Renewable energy is an obvious area for investors looking to get exposure to one of the most important investment themes of our times. Yet the local landscape for investing in renewables is limited at the moment. 
In this episode, the Revego team explains the investment structure of the fund and the type of investor likely to invest.

Earning an attractive yield while building the the renewables sector. 
From investors looking for an attractive yield, to those looking to contribute to reducing the global carbon footprint, Revego’s upcoming listing is exciting news.

There is a lot of jargon in the market when it comes investing in the renewables sector. In this episode, we cut through the jargon and highlight the key things investors should look at when considering an investment in a yieldco such as Revego Africa Investments Energy Limited, which makes its debut on the JSE this year.
