  1. At Chapin International we assist developers, investors, financial institutions and government agencies with the development of renewable energy resources in Africa and other emerging markets. We provide expert advice on a number of different levels including project development, financial structuring, financing resources, project evaluation and investment due diligence as well as market analysis and structures to attract investment. Our past and existing clients include Globeleq and the World Bank together with a number of Development Financing Institutions. We have developed expertise in the Philippines, Argentina, Costa Rica, Nicargua, Senegal, Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania, Ethiopia, Mozambique and South Africa amongst others. It appears that the Ministry of Renewable Energy could use some help in getting renewables off the ground for the country. Besides advising on policy, we also help public agencies in the preparation and evaluation of public tenders. We invite the government to contact us. We can also access funding from third party donors to finance our work.
