AEMP is an equity investor and independent power producer. We provide turnkey, innovative energy solutions through fully-financed projects.

AEMP primarily targets private industrial and mining clients by providing projects that deliver high-quality power at competitive prices. Our strength lies in financing, developing, building and operating large scale (+10 MW) renewable and hybrid energy power plants to decrease electricity costs.

Our hybrid energy solution

Our hybrid systems consist of a combination of thermal and renewable energy sources that are developed alongside each other to generate cost efficient energy solutions, together with a reduced carbon footprint.

Hybrid energy solutions generate operational cost savings by decreasing fuel and maintenance costs and also provide a hedge against future fuel increases.
