Luminous Power Technologies, a subsidiary of Schneider Electric, has partnered with Hudaco Energy to enter the South African market.
They are introducing innovative energy solutions, including the first Lithium battery pack, and plan to establish South Africa as a hub for sustainable power solutions, such as residential rooftop solar systems and local electrician training.
CEO Preeti Bajaj expressed excitement about the partnership and Luminous’ commitment to delivering reliable energy solutions in South Africa, contributing to the region’s sustainable development and energy transition.
The company has launched the first ever Lithium battery pack – LITCORE for the market, manufactured in India. It is compact, provides 3X fast charging and higher power density for consistency. It has also launched its superlative range of inverters and batteries like the ICON, Eco Volt Neo Series (900Va to 2KVa), Optimus and Inverlast Tubular batteries (150Ah, 200Ah, 220 Ah). In addition to introducing its diverse range of energy solutions, Luminous plans to make South Africa a hub for sustainable power solutions, including complete residential rooftop solar solutions (3KVa & 5KVa) and training and certifying local electricians as solar experts.
“We are happy to partner with Luminous Power Technologies which brings a global brand promise to the South African energy market,” James Sherley, MD, Hudaco Energy, said.
“The addition of Luminous Power Technologies to our portfolio of world-class products adds significant push to our drive to energise and delight Southern African consumers.
“Our partnership enjoys a shared commitment to contribute to the country’s energy transition mission while creating employment opportunities in South Africa, and the introduction of market-relevant products such as lithium-ion solutions and gel batteries.”
With six manufacturing units, more than 28 sales offices in India, and a presence in over 40 countries, our 6000 employees serve more than 100,000 channel partners and millions of customers.
“The energy storage market in South Africa is highly fragmented and unorganised, and this presents a unique opportunity for a trusted and reliable global brand like ours to enter the market with a commitment to prioritise customer needs at every step, from product search to installation and after-sales service,” said Bajaj.
“Ensuring that customers have a seamless experience, Luminous aims to establish more than 200 touch points across the country by the end of next year.”
