SEMIS (Energy services in sahelian environment) is a Limited Liability Company (LLC), under Senegalese law, with a capital of 5 millions francs CFA, founded on March 11th 1987. SEMIS is composed of a group of professionals (engineers, economists and rural world specialists) and it includes both Senegalese and foreign consultants.
SEMIS is one of the first sahelian research consultancy to have developed a set of concepts and competences on services (water and energy) and on the participative dynamics in rural environment.
The complementarity of the competences brought together in our regional network of experts allows SEMIS to offer a whole range of quality studies in the fields of water and electricity supply to rural and semi-urban areas.
