Red Rocket


What began in 2012 as Africa and the Middle East’s business unit of Building Energy, a global independent power producer, has since become Red Rocket.

With the mothership located in Cape Town, Red Rocket provides integrated solutions, from design and development to energy production, operation and maintenance, and asset management in South Africa and beyond.

Red Rocket has 377 MW of plants currently in operation, under construction or awarded preferred bidder and ready to reach financial close with $1 billion invested in various projects and a pipeline in excess of 2.0 GW in wind, hydro, and solar developments across the continent. Red Rocket’s growth strategy is based on pursuing a balanced portfolio of renewable assets, market maturity, as well as currency exposure (ZAR, USD, and EUR).
