Parallax is a limited liability company that was established in 2001.  It was based in Cape Town, South Africa, with a second office in the United Kingdom. The aim of our business is to achieve sustainable development through environmentally sound energy solutions.

Our geographical targets are isolated areas across the world, primarily (though not exclusively) in developing countries with a particular focus on rural areas in Sub-Saharan Africa.

In 2009, the head office of Parallax was relocated to Paris, France, to enable close links with the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP), the International Energy Agency (IEA) and the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD).
