HYBRID ENERGY STORAGE

Westore is a full-stack energy storage system developer with a focus in the Commercial, Industrial, Agricultural and Mini-grid energy storage segments in South Africa and Africa. 

 

We offer a range of exclusive battery and thermal storage product offerings including Advanced Lead-Acid batteries and Hybrid Lead-Lithium systems. 

THE PROBLEM STATEMENT

Energy Storage is not affordable on an upfront cash basis and lacks innovative funding that allows for mass adoption of energy storage assets and limits the amount of intermittent renewable generation that can practically be deployed.

ENERGY ACCESS

More than 500 Million people in sub-Saharan Africa live without access to reliable electricity.

Project economics

Upfront battery energy storage costs restrict renewable energy project uptake, viability and returns.

ENergy transition

Lack of dispatchable energy storage to support intermittent renewables limit the scale of energy transition. 

HOW WE SOLVE THIS

We use a technology propelled, asset smart business model that allows for innovative finance solutions that makes storage affordable for mass adoption, while generating real returns for participating funders.
