Renewable Energies




Omnivat is a renewable energy technology start-up that has gained prominence through its success in the Milken-Motsepe Green Energy Competition.

Omnivat has developed a range of products to expand sustainable, reliable, and affordable energy access in Sub-Saharan Africa.
These products include the Omnivat Green Market – a field-ready, factory-commissioned, containerised, smart microgrid with a hybrid energy storage system (hydrogen and batteries).
Omnivat’s Green Market provides 60kWh of electricity per day (1-2kWh/household) and can leverage swarm technologies.

In contrast to traditional microgrids which deliver only electricity, Omnivat’s Green Market unlocks the productive use of electricity, by using hydrogen systems to produce clean drinking water and efficient design to enable refrigeration.

A communal marketplace hosts the Green Market system, supporting economic activity between local traders and the community, and facilitating digitalisation through wi-fi access.
