Our Team

Renewable energy is an industry that’s only going to continue to grow in the future. Advances in areas such as photovoltaic (PV) technology are constantly making it more reliable. With people growing more concerned about the environment and rising energy costs, it’s likely that a growing number of energy users, not to mention businesses and entrepreneurs, will embrace the benefits that renewables provide.

Here at Shakra Energy, our team has the skills to help you build all kinds of solar projects, large and small. Two of our main types of projects are solar farms for agricultural landowners and full-scale solar PV power plants.

We’ve developed strong relationships and partnerships with other industry professionals all around the world. This makes it easier to implement projects in various markets and to ensure their ongoing operation and maintenance. Working in close co-operation with project developers across the globe, we have professionals on site to ensure that everything runs according to plan.


Bassem (Sam) Khalil

Founder & Executive Chairman

Sam is one of the most dedicated, knowledgeable people in the property and renewable energy development sector, with over 30 years’ experience.

Sam began his career in the acquisition and project management sectors. Working for a developer in Sydney, he was inspired to become a developer himself. He spent eight years as the Acquisition and General Manager at Executive Builders and Developers, where he successfully completed projects in sub-division, construction and property development.
After that his career continued to go from strength to strength. He has spent over a decade as the executive chairman of Shakra Group. In this role he has undertaken a number of ambitious, successful projects including Brisbane Airport’s rooftop solar project, the largest of its kind in the southern hemisphere.

Since 2013, Sam has also been the managing director of Shakra Energy. He plans to continue growing the business and helping others to grow too.
