Botala Energy is an innovative and forward-looking exploration and development company. Our mission is to enable a successful, secure and sustainable energy future for Botswana. Established in 2018, Botala is exploring and developing, the Serowe Gas Project, in Botswana and Solar Opportunities. Our current operations are centralised around our coal bed methane (CBM) projects; with the potential for new and exciting renewable projects in the future.

We listed on the ASX 12-months ago; our development and growth over the past year has been significant. We have grown our commercial pilot programme and made a positive progression towards our renewable energy goals. We are aiming to create sustainable, environmental and economic benefits for a wide range of stakeholders and shareholders. This includes increasing the supply and reliability of Botswana’s energy supply and reducing the cost of the domestic energy. Our aspiration is to remove the need for Botswana to import external energy and creating a revenue stream through the export of cleaner electricity by the sale of gas.
