Nigerian Breweries signs deal with Daystar Power for a 4.2MWp solar plant   

Nigerian Breweries has signed a deal with Daystar Power for a 4.3 megawatts peak solar plant in its Lagos brewery. This is according to a November 28 statement by Daystar.

According to the statement, Daystar Power has been contracted to set up and manage a solar plant with a capacity of 4.2 megawatts peak (MWp) along with a 2-megawatt-hour (MWh) battery storage system.

This installation marks a significant step as one of the largest solar and battery storage projects tailored for an industrial manufacturer within Nigeria.

The solar-powered system will be a hybrid solution that will annually produce 5,249 megawatt-hours (MWh) of electricity, accounting for 42% of the daytime power consumption at Nigerian Breweries’ brewery in Lagos.

Integrating solar energy into the factory’s power supply will significantly reduce reliance on diesel generators, displacing an estimated 31.4 million litres of diesel and preventing an estimated 84,758 tons of CO2 emissions over the project’s 20-year operational span.

The statement also highlighted the fact that the collaboration between Nigerian Breweries and Daystar Power to implement a hybrid solar and battery storage system aligns with Heineken’s pledge to reduce its production-related carbon footprint by 2030 and achieve complete decarbonization across its entire value chain by 2040.

Jasper Graf von Hardenberg, the CEO of Daystar Power, expressed enthusiasm about the agreement with Nigerian Breweries, considering it a significant achievement within their Nigerian portfolio.

He emphasized their pride in supporting Heineken’s commitment to embracing renewable energy and accelerating its transition toward sustainability.

He said: 
▪ “We are thrilled to sign an agreement with Nigerian Breweries for this milestone project, one of the largest in our portfolio in Nigeria. We could not be prouder to support Heineken as it accelerates its adoption of renewable energy.”
