Deutsche Bank in Africa


Deutsche Bank has been successfully engaged in Africa for several decades, operating a branch in Johannesburg along with representative offices in Lagos and Cairo. Over this period, our bank has developed significant expertise in African markets and has substantially contributed to the development of infrastructure on the continent as well as to the investment activities of companies.


With an extensive network of correspondent banks in more than 30 African countries, Deutsche Bank ensures that its corporate clients can smoothly conduct trade financing. Furthermore, we structure and arrange financing for states and their institutions, banks, multilateral financing banks, and companies. This opens up access for many clients to global capital markets as well as alternative financing sources. We are committed to increasing our engagement in sustainable projects in the future.

About SUNFarming


Since its foundation in 2004, SUNfarming GmbH has covered the entire project development and EPC (Engineering, Procurement, Construction) value chain: starting from planning, development, financing and construction, as well as the monitoring and maintenance of solar parks and associated concepts like e-mobility and agrophotovoltaics (Food & Energy). Our international team, composed of experienced business professionals, engineers, and technicians, has successfully implemented projects with a total capacity of more than 600 MWp. SUNfarming undertakes the technical operational management for over 320 MWp of these installations, both domestically and internationally.


































In Africa, SUNfarming focuses on Food & Energy installations. Food & Energy ensures effective food production while simultaneously providing a sustainable energy supply through photovoltaics. The goal is to invest in installations of at least 30 MWp that include integrated training in the fields of PV, batteries, and e-mobility. Bio-vegetables, eggs, and fish are produced between and under the modules, coupled with local marketing. For every MWp, between 500 to 1000 jobs are created over 10 years, and food is produced for 2500 to 5000 people. SUNfarming is active across Africa, with a focus on the member states of the G20 initiative "Compact with Africa."
