Peter BenHur Nyeko co-founded Mandulis, a cleantech start-up and social enterprise focused on developing and deploying new technologies and approaches to deliver energy that is affordable, reliable, sustainable, and capable of driving economic development, in urban and rural communities.
Mandulis is one of the inaugural nine Laudato Si’ Challenge companies, and has been backed by the UNCDF, the African Development Bank, KfW and UECCC, among others.
Mandulis leads the development of “Earth Energy”, which will be Africa’s largest grid-tied biomass gasification power plant, as well as the off-grid “REPARLE” Project, using renewable energy to power agriculture and enhance the livelihoods of thousands of rural smallholder farmers in Uganda.
Nyeko has founded other businesses in Uganda, and has worked in renewable energy finance, education, transport and logistics.
He has an MEng in Aerospace Engineering from the University of Bristol. He is an avid Ballroom Dancer and Thespian, and is fluent in French, Arabic, and Acholi.
