OUR HISTORY

Leading the energy transition since 2012

Reon was established in 2012 with an integrated vision to give our customers an energy abundant future by harnessing the potential of environment. Since then, our business has evolved in multiple ways, but we have never dithered from this vision.

2012-2014

Reon Energy Solutions and Tenaga Generasi Limited were created through a spin-off from DLL. The rationale behind the spin-off was to give Reon complete independence to pursue solar industrial, solar tube well, solar lanterns and bioenergy solutions projects. Some of the key projects include bioenergy plant at Nestle farms, solar tube wells at Sharaqpur, solar for telecom tower at Kallar Kahar, and a 125kW project at Wah Nobel Limited. Our initial experience led the way to becoming the largest industrial and telecom energy solution provider.

2015-2017

Inspired from the early success of its renewable energy business, and with a drive to bring greater value to the economy and its customer, Reon strategized to become the leading industrial renewable energy player in the region. Several projects including 1 MW plus projects were deployed at Wah Nobel Limited, 30 kW pilot at Unilever Khanewal Tea Factory which later translated into solar for projects for all Unilever factories across Pakistan, 1 MW for Kohinoor Textile Mill, solar for basic health units across Punjab and 1000 plus towers with LCC for Telenor Pakistan.
Reon became the only company to offer energy infrastructure to the telecommunication towers and data centers across Pakistan.

2018

We became the largest company in our sector  in Pakistan to offer distributed, digitized and low carbon energy solutions. A localized energy analytics platform SPARK was developed to monitor and to optimize plant performance for industrial and telecom customers, combined with a Network Operations Center to proactively monitor and resolve customer problems in an efficient manner.

Pakistan’s first corporate Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) was signed with Sindh Engro Coal Mining Company (SECMC) for a 5 MW project in Tharparkar, Sindh.

2019

Reon deployed the largest solar project for gas upstream sector in the world – 10 MW project in the Kirthar mountain ranges in partnership with The Italian Energy Company Eni. Reon became the leading partner for textile companies across Pakistan, and deployed energy for telecom towers on the Makran Coastal Belt right up to Iran’s border. This project for the first time brought telecom signals to the coastal highway. The initial successes with telecom led to the deployment of 22.46 MWh of Li-Ion based storage solutions for 1534 telecom sites across Pakistan.

In line with the founders’ vision, Reon initiated climate literacy projects and solar school electrification projects for The Citizens Foundation. You can read more about our contribution under Our Impact.

2020

As the world faced the new Covid-19 induced reality, Reon adopted strict health and safety protocols to protect colleagues and our wider ecosystem from this grave threat. While the office employees were moved to work from home, Reon employed strict SOPs to limit COVID-19 risk at sites.

Some key projects during this time include 4 MW rooftop project for Gatron industries, 1.8 MW PPA based project for P&G, 9 MW project for Unilever factories, 4MW project for Amreli Steel, two successive wins for Kohinoor Textile and multiple megawatt plus wins in Faisalabad region. 2020 also witnessed Reon embark on what’ll be the largest industrial solar project in the world at the time of it’s commissioning, 57MW project for Bestway Group covering all four of its cement plants in Pakistan. Another first and yet another landmark for the industry.

Reon is emerging from the COVID-19 crisis stronger than before and with a much greater drive to play a leading role in the clean energy transition.

2021

This was an amazing year for Reon. This year has seen us become the largest renewable energy company in Pakistan and the 5th most populous country in the world. This year has also seen us make some of the biggest impacts on the communities and customers that we serve, but at the same time on the environment. We’ve integrated 100 megawatts of renewable energy across all the projects we’ve delivered thus sequestering 6 million tons of carbon across the life cycle of these projects. This is equivalent to planting 5 million trees. This year we have also become a multinational company, we’re executing our first international project in Qatar whereas part of the 2022 FIFA world cup. The most exciting part of the year was the launch of Reflex, a large-scale industrial storage battery.
