Access Energy Group (“AEG”) was founded in May 2012 by Mr. Reda El Chaar with an aim of structuring, developing, and investing into infrastructure projects in emerging and frontier markets. In the same year, the company founded its flagship operating entity under the name of Access Consultants which quickly became a leading advisor on large scale government tendered independent power projects (IPPs) in the MENA region and secured one of the largest land portfolios in Saudi Arabia intended for the development of renewable energy projects.
By the end of 2013 Access Consultants started to expand its development activities into Africa which led in 2014 to the incorporation of Access Infra Africa, a vehicle dedicated to developing power projects in Africa. Since then Access Consultants was rebranded as Access Power MEA.
In 2014, AEG formed several partnerships including Access Energy Ventures, a company focused on investing in power projects and technologies.
