Daystar Power Partners with Nigerian Breweries for Landmark Solar and Battery Storage Project

In a significant step towards sustainable energy adoption, Daystar Power, a leading provider of hybrid solar power solutions in Africa, has partnered with Nigerian Breweries to install and operate a 4.2MWp solar plant and 2MWh battery storage system at the brewery’s Lagos facility. This project marks one of the largest solar and battery storage installations for an industrial manufacturer in Nigeria.

The hybrid solar solution is expected to generate 5,249 MWh of electricity annually, accounting for 42% of the brewery’s daytime power consumption. This integration of solar power into the brewery’s energy mix will significantly reduce its reliance on diesel generators, displacing an estimated 31.4 million liters of diesel and offsetting approximately 84,758 tons of CO2 over the installation’s 20-year lifespan.

Nigerian Breweries, a subsidiary of Heineken, is one of Nigeria’s leading beverage manufacturers, producing popular brands such as Star Beer and Maltina. The agreement with Daystar aligns with Heineken’s commitment to decarbonize its operations by 2030 and its entire value chain by 2040.

“We are delighted to partner with Nigerian Breweries on this landmark project, one of the largest in our Nigerian portfolio. We are honored to support Heineken in its accelerated adoption of renewable energy solutions,” stated Jasper Graf von Hardenberg, CEO of Daystar Power.

This project represents a significant step towards sustainable manufacturing practices in Nigeria and sets a precedent for other industrial players to follow suit. By embracing renewable energy sources, Nigerian Breweries is not only reducing its environmental footprint but also contributing to a more sustainable future for the country.
