Innovators in Energy: Ugwen I. Eneyo

In honor of Black History Month, we are celebrating the contributions made by African Americans and other members of the African diaspora in society, industry and history with our Innovators in Energy series.

Ugwen I. Eneyo is co-founder & CEO of SHYFT Power Solutions, an award-winning, venture-backed energy technology company that is pioneering the use of IoT, software and big data to improve access to clean, reliable and affordable energy solutions in markets that struggle with grid resiliency.

As a former Stanford MS/PhD student in Civil & Environmental Engineering, Eneyo’s studies explored how we use tech to create “grids of the future,” particularly in emerging markets. She has also given talks regarding the nexus of energy and sustainable development to global thought leaders, including the World Bank.
