About SHYFT Power Solutions

We build IoT and integrated software solutions to optimize energy asset performance (that's solar, battery, grid, and/or generator systems) and help our customers, renewable energy companies, facility managers and real estate developers improve operational efficiency while at it. Today, nearly every major bank in Nigeria has a branch using SHYFT technology to ensure reliable and affordable power. With over 3,000kW of energy assets being managed by SHYFT technology in emerging markets like Nigeria, we're a catalyst for the energy transition.

SHYFT is funded by some of the greatest investors in Silicon Valley and around the world including Total Carbon Neutrality Ventures, Softbank, and Powerhouse Ventures among many more.
