Overview of Business

Founded in 2016 and based in Johannesburg, South Africa, Solzen Energy is an energy company and a start-up specializing in R&D, design, and manufacturing of disruptive energy storage technologies for application in renewable energy, automotive (electric vehicles), grid storage (on and off the grid) and telecommunications industries. We are currently in the prototype development and application phase of a robust Ultracapacitor built on nanotechnology and manufacturing proprietary processes. Our technology stores as much energy as in a lithium-ion battery but can be recharged in seconds or minutes. It can tolerate over 100,000 charging cycles without losing its capacitance and has a long life cycle. We aim to bring this technology to market in the 4th quarter of 2019.

Our mission is to make a difference in the global energy industry by pioneering technologies that address energy storage problems in the renewable energy, telecommunications, grid storage, and automotive industries. We believe we can live up to this mammoth and audacious undertaking by;

  • Investing significantly in R&D to continue to be pioneers and remain competitive •
  • Instilling the culture of open learning, innovation and high performance
  • Rewarding excellence, creativity and innovative thinking
  • Promoting collaboration with our customers and stakeholders
