Emergent Energy is founded on the belief that our energy systems should be healthier, cleaner, more efficient, and more reliable. We aim to contribute to the achievement of such a system by consistently offering sustainable energy solutions that equal or better the performance of incumbent technologies. This ethos is underlined by three key principles:


We operate on the core idea that our work should protect and enhance the natural resources that sustain both us, and the earth that we live on. To this end, we pursue projects that add value to the communities, regions, and ecosystems in which our clients operate and live.


At Emergent Energy, we understand that modern industries and economies are driven by creativity and innovation. Just as existing energy technologies must continuously adapt, improve, or give way to new alternatives, we aim to constantly improve our services and skills, and to adopt and develop new ones where necessary.

Social Responsibility

Emergent Energy is a product of its people, and its people are a product of the South African community. We believe that skills, knowledge and progress can not be created in a vacuum, and that all South African companies should actively engage with their communities, share their experiences, and learn from their surroundings.
