About us



Invent Group provides technical and managerial solutions across a range of industries.

More specifically, Invent Group currently leverages its unique mix of mining expertise and in-depth knowledge of renewable energy technology to provide attractive renewable energy solutions to the mining industry. Invent Group is aware that the mining industry recognises the benefit of renewable energy solutions, while some apprehension towards the related technology has translated into limited uptake.

Invent Group understands the highly technical and operational requirements of running a mining asset, and the associated production requirements and pressures. Accordingly, we work with our clients to deliver turn-key energy solutions that will not impact the existing operations during the construction phase, and improve operational efficiency once complete.


Invent Group has entered into a partnership with Canadian Solar, a global leader in the solar and renewable energy industry. This partnership enables the Group to deliver solutions, of all sizes, to all sectors, covering all commercial arrangements that may be required by our customers. This partnership also ensures that all our client's projects benefit from industry leading engineering design and implementation capabilities, as well as the full lifecycle management of our solutions.



Invent Group is currently working on a number of projects through its subsidiaries Invent Mining and Energy Invent.
