Tlou Energy is an AIM and ASX listed company focused on delivering power in Botswana through the development of coal bed methane (CBM) gas. Botswana has a severe energy shortage and is currently relying on expensive imported power and diesel generation to deliver its requirements.
Tlou is planning an initial scalable gas-to-power project in Botswana. Following successful implementation of this first scalable project, the Company plans to expand to provide further power to Botswana and the southern African region.
