CDIL was incorporated in 2013 to develop renewable energy infrastructure in Sub-Saharan Africa. Harnessing the strengths and local presence of its parent company CPCS, an international management consulting firm, CDIL focuses on early stage development of clean power projects.
CDIL is focused on the greenfield development of power infrastructure projects in Africa. CDIL is technology agnostic, developing projects that fit the specific needs of the countries and regions in which we work. CDIL’s team plays a hands-on role in the development of projects, from sourcing and origination through to financial close. Construction equity and debt are sourced from leading international and domestic financial institutions.
CDIL’s management team has over 75 years’ experience in the energy sector and has developed over 1GW of projects. The management of CDIL is supplemented by CPCS’ deep experience in the power sector and strong relationships with governments and regional institutions across Africa.
CDIL is committed to developing projects to the highest international standards. We realize we are often guests in the communities where our projects are situated and thus place environmental and social assessment, impact and engagement at the core of our development process. More information on our commitment and process can be found in CDIL’s Environment and Social Management Policy and System, available to download here.
