About BeBa


We are a renewable energy company and one of the pioneers in solar photovoltaics (PV) and wind energy in Germany.

Since 1996, BeBa Group has built a long track record in development, engineering, construction and operation of solar power plants and wind parks in Germany and internationally.

Building on this experience, we founded BeBa Africa in 2016.

We have office locations in Hemmingstedt (near Hamburg) and The Hague in the Netherlands.

What we do

As project developer, turn-key EPC contractor and Independent Power Producer (IPP), we are keen to help serving the growing demand for electricity in some of Sub-Saharan Africa’s rapidly industrializing countries, by providing cost-competitive, reliable and green power solutions, which maximize value for both customers and investors.
