Founded in 2011 and headquartered in Lagos, Elektron started as an energy trading outfit and morphed into an energy infrastructure platform company engaged in developing and operating prime energy infrastructure projects in West Africa, with a key focus in its home market, Nigeria. Elektron also considers strategic opportunities in complimentary energy ventures that leverage the company’s expertise and relationships to yield outsize returns.
The concept of “prime” projects refers to sustainable infrastructure assets designed for long-term contractual off-takes with credit worthy counter-parties; in stable regional markets supported by realistic economic and geo-political fundamentals.
We are a committed team with over 100 years of combined relevant experience. Our principals have critically relevant know-how in developing, acquiring and financing energy and energy infrastructure assets in Nigeria, Africa and the rest of the world. We thrive on the challenges of project development and operations in the region. With an eye to sustainability, our projects emerge from a rigorous framework that emphasizes application of proven solutions for clients, flexible execution to deal with local realities, and tangible profitability.
Elektron’s business model is based on a staged development plan to create value by combining its indigenous knowledge and execution capabilities in consultations with strategic, technical, regulatory and financing players. Our culture is guided by a set of core values that preserve our reputation as reliable partners.
The Company has devised comprehensive strategic roadmaps across the power, oil and gas infrastructure verticals; leading to a near term project bank of four viable projects representing approximately $150M of total assets. Elektron owns Alausa Power Limited (“ALPL”), a special purpose vehicle that operates a leading 10.6MW IPP in Lagos State.
