Puma Energy’s subsidiary, Future Energies business has launched 11 solar projects at its retail fuel stations and a further three at its terminals in Ghana, West Africa. The projects at 11 of the 14 sites will be supported by battery storage. The combined solar and battery power systems in 14 service stations and terminals in Ghana are part of Puma Energy’s Future Energies’ wider business plan to roll renewable energy projects around the world.

These projects benefit from Ghana’s high solar energy potential and have a total capacity of 422kW and associated battery storage of 224kWh and can provide up to 100% of a site’s energy. Puma Energy Ghana general manager Henry Osei said: “We are proud to install the solar systems in our sites and depots as it meets our purpose of energising communities and reinforces our commitment to clean energy solutions and meeting our ESG goals.”

Future Energies focuses on developing lower-carbon, modular, distributed renewable energy systems, including energy management and storage, particularly in emerging markets across the Americas, Africa, and Asia-Pacific where so far the renewable energy transition has been slower and has huge growth potential.

Puma Energy aims to deploy solar and or battery storage in at least 75 per cent of company-owned retail sites, depots, and terminals in the world by 2023. Future Energies is also scaling the rollout of solar hybrid systems to other nations with high solar energy potential including Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, Honduras, and Papa New Guinea.
