Sunhive Ltd was started by Gbenga Kogbe, a former energy executive with Shell International, Amerada Hess (in the US) and GE Wind Energy (in the US). A passion for renewable energy and emerging opportunities in the UK and around the world has resulted in the emergence of Sunhive.

With funding from a leading green investment fund in the UK, Sunhive pioneered “free solar panel schemes” for domestic properties on the south coast of England. The scheme for domestic property has now been paused.

Sunhive was launched in Nigeria in 2015. The company delivered the first industrial solar PV-Genset solution in Nigeria in 2017 with the Hybrid Controller from Germany’s leading PV inverter company, SMA.  Since then, the company has delivered similar solutions throughout Nigeria. In Nigeria, Sunhive focuses on commercial and industrial-scale solar solutions, providing it services to clients from Warri to Maiduguri.
