The mission of Wattstor

The power of Janom
The success of Wattstor is driven by the ongoing and broad-ranging support of our parent company Janom. Janom has been associated with some of the most ambitious and innovative projects in its diverse field.
The Slovakia-based company recognized the potential of sustainable energy for the immediate future and entered into a strategic partnership with our UK-based team. Janom continues to take an active interest in the daily operation of its subsidiary company. With more than 20 years of experience at the highest level of the European technology sector, the accumulated corporate know-how of Janom is simply invaluable.
While our solutions may appear futuristic, there is nothing experimental or unproven about them. At Wattsor, we only use reliable technologies that have been fully tested in the field. We take advantage of every implementation we do to learn a little more about energy storage.
We have deployed many solutions across both residential and large corporate buildings, so scaling up to fit the requirements of any project is never a concern. Our experienced team has an intricate understanding of applicable standard and regulations, allowing us to provide a broad range of compatibility. Our competitors are just starting to pay attention to the sustainable energy sector – we are already miles ahead!
