Daystar Powers Nigerian Breweries
- Daystar Power is revolutionizing Nigeria's energy landscape with its 4.2-MWp solar power plant and 2-MWh battery energy storage system. Join Daystar on its mission to install 200 MW of solar-plus-storage solutions and reduce reliance on diesel generators by 2022.
The project is part of Daystar's larger target to install 200 MW of solar-plus-storage solutions in Nigeria by 2022.
Daystar Power has signed an agreement with Nigerian Breweries Plc, a Heineken NV company, to install a 4.2-MWp solar power plant and a 2-MWh battery energy storage system at its brewery in Lagos. This project aims to generate 42% of Nigerian Breweries' daytime power consumption and reduce their reliance on diesel generators. It will generate 5,249 MWh of electricity annually and displace 31.4 million litres of diesel over the 20-year life of the installation. The project supports Heineken’s sustainability and decarbonisation goals and is part of Daystar's larger target to install 200 MW of solar-plus-storage solutions in Nigeria by 2022.
How Will Daystar Power Achieve 200 MW of Solar-Plus-Storage Solutions in Nigeria by 2022?
Here are some additional steps Daystar Power will take to achieve their goal:
- Developing additional solar projects in Nigeria, including additional projects with the Nigerian Breweries and other businesses
- Partnering with local contractors and suppliers to provide new power solutions
- Leveraging new technologies to increase efficiency and reduce costs
- Investing in research and development to increase the capacity of solar projects
- Exploring opportunities to create energy storage systems
- Educating the public on the benefits of investing in solar energy
- Promoting renewable energy to government and other stakeholders
- Creating employment opportunities with the development of solar projects
