enee.io is transforming battery replacement for C&I customers across Africa

ARE Member enee.io develops remote energy monitoring systems in areas with inadequate grid that grants companies and distributed energy providers visibility into multiple site performance from one centralised dashboard. Regardless of a batteries manufacturer, make or model, the enee.io system seamlessly integrates with any new or existing energy systems.

enee.io’s latest Battery State-of-health feature represents fundamental shift in the approach to battery replacement for commercial and industrial energy users in Africa.

Many site owners and facility managers face challenges surrounding battery life and capacity, often lacking the timely information to make financial forecasts and plans on when to replace battery banks. enee.io’s solution allows users to monitor the remaining capacity and lifespan of their operational battery banks, all from one centralised dashboard online.

Heavy reliance on diesel generators as backup has become a costly burden to many across Africa due to a consistent rise in oil prices over the past two years. Site owners have also invested heavily in battery storage systems and often find out too late whether the bank has sufficient capacity to serve their energy needs.

Responding to these challenges, enee.io has carefully developed a new set of algorithms to give users the crucial insights needed to mitigate additional energy costs that often go unseen. A quickly deteriorating state of health of a battery fleet can help identify issues within an energy system, allowing for corrective action to be taken, not only improving the life of the battery, but reducing the overall energy costs.

In a statement, enee.io’s Founder and CEO David Smith highlighted the significance of the new algorithm, stating, “Launching this new State-of-Health feature will deliver a lot of value to our customers. Site owners and facility managers have repeatedly expressed concerns about escalating diesel generation costs and a lack of visibility into the remaining life of their battery banks. With our system, we have already identified numerous sites with failing battery banks, and now we empower users to monitor battery performance over time, providing ample opportunity for proactive replacement planning. This not only enhances financial forecasting but also streamlines problem diagnosis across multiple sites.”

Coming at the right time of enee.io’s expansion into the African market, this latest feature enables businesses to optimise their planning processes and efficiently manage site performance, all through the convenience of enee.io’s centralised dashboard. As the industry ushers in a new era of intelligent energy solutions, enee.io is striving to stand at the forefront, reshaping the landscape for commercial and industrial energy users across Africa.
