Bushveld Energy is focused on developing and promoting the role of vanadium in the growing energy storage market.
Bushveld Energy is an energy storage solutions provider – focused on vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFBs).
Leverages vanadium processing capacity and knowledge for production of electrolyte:
Manufacturing of energy storage systems in the form of vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFBs):
MW scale energy storage project development and direct sales into large mandates and tenders:
Our services and products are informed by extensive lessons learned in energy storage, renewable energy, and project financing.
We assist in the feasibility, technical analysis, and development services of power projects that include vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFBs).
Once they achieve a bankable stage, we make our own investment and asset management services available to drive the development to full commercial operation.
The main services offered by Bushveld Energy are:
This service line supports project developers and end-users to develop an understanding of the battery energy storage sector, specifically focusing on vanadium redox flow batteries (VRFBs). The service line delivers on technical due diligence, including permitting and environmental optimisation.
One of the complexities projects experience is with the cost benefit analysis. We have experience and the skill sets to develop and produce cost benefit analysis and business cases for the use of banks, EPC service providers, and equity partners.
Bringing the team’s accumulated experience to the project to be able to meet the demands of funders and realise a bankable energy storage project – which is both technically sound and able to generate returns for the investor.
We focus on bringing our own balance sheet and debt raising capabilities to a project and ensure that the design and development, the procurement, the funding, commissioning and asset management is best fit for the opportunity.
Bushveld Energy launched in 2016 and is building an energy storage supply chain in South Africa by leveraging the company’s South African-mined and beneficiated vanadium.
With supply integration into vanadium mining, processing and chemicals in the London-listed Bushveld Minerals group, Bushveld Energy can supply components, deploy vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) solutions, and make investments in manufacturing and energy projects.
We have a global client base and are working across Africa and the world – demonstrating the benefits of long duration storage, and more specifically, vanadium redox flow batteries. Our innovation within the energy storage sector shows businesses how energy storage can increase their bottom line and the sustainability of their overall strategy.
We aim to transform Africa by addressing the continent’s greatest obstacle to faster growth and industrialisation – reliable electricity supply.
By building a common knowledge base and providing distributed, utility-scale energy storage solutions and services to the energy sector, Bushveld Energy seeks to:
Bushveld Energy’s business model embraces several activities along the vanadium redox flow battery (VRFB) value chain, including electrolyte production, investment in VRFB manufacturing, and energy storage project development across Africa.
Bushveld Energy’s business model focuses on various revenue-generating activities in the mid- and downstream segments of the vanadium value chain. These activities have comparatively low capital requirements compared with the mining business.
Implementation of these activities will continue to follow the principles of strategic relationships. Relevant external parties include development agencies, funders, renewable energy developers, and energy storage component providers.
