Plentify was born out of need. Plentify’s founders grew up in South Africa, and in 2008, rolling blackouts began. The country’s energy system continued to deteriorate almost as fast as tariffs rose, making its power supply increasingly unreliable and unaffordable – as it stands today.
South Africa’s situation is not unique. Electricity grids around the globe are under immense pressure as rapid urbanisation and climate change strain them in new ways, and renewable energy solutions struggle to integrate into existing systems. It’s clear that utilities worldwide need to adapt to a quickly and dramatically-changing future.
Having experienced the impact of these changes first-hand, the Plentify team banded together to tackle pressing energy challenges through their unique mix of skills. We firmly believe that a smarter, cleaner and cheaper energy system is key to enabling societal and planetary resilience.
