Company Description

At SHYFT Power Solutions, we're on a mission to ensure that clean, reliable, and affordable energy solutions can scale and sustainably meet demand. 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.

As a venture-backed company, SHYFT’s culture encompasses limited hierarchy, creativity, and initiative all while delivering the benefits of a larger group (i.e. prominent customers and resourceful advisors & investors). We’re a team that thrives in the midst of challenges and finds fulfillment in building exceptional products that solve real problems. 

We’ve been fortunate to be 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. The leadership and advisors bring together Stanford engineers, ex-Tesla executives, and experienced Nigerian operations professionals.
