Energy will be one of the defining issues of the twenty first century. Demand for cost effective, reliable and clean energy is soaring like never before.
This is especially relevant to South Africa as millions of people start to enjoy the benefits of a lifestyle that requires increasing amounts of energy. This energy though needs to be cost effective and reliable. This increased demand for sustainable, reliable, cheap and secure energy is where Karebo has devoted its energy to.
The company has geared itself to provide professional services and products to address this growing demand for clean and reliable energy. Due to the experience and background of the core team in Karebo Groups these services have been confined to the electricity sector of the energy industry. Karebo Group provides services and products relevant to this gargantuan industry. Some of these services and products are specified below:
Services – Energy Management
Advisory services and implementation services. This service covers the full value chain of DSM from project development and execution to strategic services, program management and execution. The extensive experience of the team in this area is an asset that the company utilises with great advantage.
Products – LED Lamps and Fixtures
Karebo through its long association with Philips in both the lighting manufacturing space as well and the project space has developed relationships with large and reputable Chinese factories. These are the same factories that manufacture LED lamps and fixtures for the current premium lighting brands. Our intimate project knowledge allows us to develop a custom solution that ticks the following boxes
- Has lighting performance specifications that meet or exceeds the customer’s requirements. This is especially relevant in retrofit projects. We design our moulds and ensure that the lighting package is fit for purpose

Karebo has over the years created a cost effective national footprint that allows us to perform electrical and lighting maintenance for large commercial customers.

Product and Service – Smart Metering and Revenue Enhancement
Karebo has put together a team of professional that spans the full value chain from meter to cash in the electricity billing chain. We have gone further to be able to take the existing big data that is generated from these projects to be able to develop custom workflows and custom dashboard that local utilities can practically use to maximise their revenue collection.
We develop tools and reports that are able to detect billing anomalies based on previous historical patterns and data sets.
We are currently working on machine learning techniques to be able to detect anomalies in the billing patterns.
Product and Service – Green Energy Solutions
The need for sustainable, reliable, cheap and secure energy is covered under this offering. This deals with off grid solutions, back up solutions and solutions that straddle both off grid and back up. Our process is to first reduce the current load to the minimum possible load as this is normally a more cost effective solution and provides savings as well and then to make the switch to an off-grid solution.
