70% of the population of Sub-Saharan Africa is without electricity. Road access in Africa is at 34% vs. 90% in the rest of the world, and transport costs are 100% higher.

Black Rhino identifies the major need for energy-related infrastructure development in Africa. Black Rhino’s primary focus is the development of greenfield, energy-related infrastructure projects. There has been tremendous growth in African economies in recent years and continuation of the upward trend in growth statistics is dependent on access to fuel and electricity. Black Rhino aims to address GDP growth bottlenecks caused by unreliable or insufficient energy supply.

Our projects have both a discernible, immediate, direct impact while also stimulating longer-term transformational economic growth. We believe that getting projects into operation quickly is crucial for keeping infrastructure capacities paced with economic and social development.
