Energy Efficiency

Gearing towards a renewable and low carbon-producing economies.

The energy requirements of economies on the beginning path towards industrialisation requires a new approach to the provision of electricity. A decentralised sector where industries are able to produce and use their own electricity is key to cheap and continuous electricity. Furthermore, with the advanement of renewable energy, cross border financing and greater energy requirements, developing countries face a stark choice - either increase electricity generation or remain agrarian societies dependent on exporting raw materials.

Eqensu works with a number of the key stakeholders to create dialogue and mutually beneficial relationships that lead to the advancement in the provision of renewable energy to the industrial and commercial sectors.

Hydropower for electricity and irrigation:

We like to call hydro power the King of the Renewables. Why? Because of its ability to produce significant amounts of base power electricity at the cheapest cost per kilowatt hour. And with significant untapped potential, it offers the greatest renewable potential for developing countries especially in Africa. Aside from power generation, dams also have the potential to provide irrigation to areas that would otherwise be at the mercy of sporadic rainwater.

Photovoltaic systems: Solar and storage

The use of photovoltaic systems (commonly called solar energy) to generate electricity is a technology that has the potential to profoundly change the generation and usage of electricity within the developing countries of the world. Despite the common misconception, "solar electricity" is best utilised to provide cheap electricity, instead of the misapplied idea that its solely for use when there is no electricity. Solar energy is therefore here to stay. Furthermore, with the advances in battery storage sectors including utilities, the commercial and domestic arenas are seeing the advantages of solar energy over those created by fossil fuels.

We are acutely aware of the barriers towards the adoption of solar generated erlectricity. Factors such as the high initial cost of these systems plus the limited scope of battery technology for larger sized systems are impediments that we are able to overcome. Eqensu works with a number of clients within the public and private sectors to see how they can best learn of and adapt to this emerging technology within developing countries.

Biofuel: Biodiesel and Biogas

Biodiesel is a fuel that can be used as either a diesel alternative or mixed with regular diesel and used in vehicles. Derived from either waste oils or oil from specific seeds, biodiesel is a renewable alternative to regular diesel. Blends of biodiesel and conventional hydrocarbon-based diesel are products most commonly distributed for use in the retail diesel fuel marketplace.

The production of biogas from household and human waste plays a significant role in the renewable energy sector. This energy is derived from the breaking down of organic products by a chemical process called anaerobic digestion. Once these products are broken down, the methane and other gases produced are known as biogas. These biogases can then be used for regular day to day events such as cooking and can power biogas generators to produce electricity. We believe that biogas solutions are well adapted to areas where the supply of electricity is limited but the amount of organic waste is substantial.

Rainwater harvesting

Despite the significant amount of rainwater that fills in many parts of the African continent, access to drinking water or even clean water is limited in many of the continents' regions. Furthermore, the flooding that takes place within many urban and rural areas can be significantly reduced if we are able to better capture, store and use rainwater. Rainwater harvesting is the process of collecting and storing water that comes down when it rains and falls onto your roof. Therefore rain water systems are generally composed of three parts. Firstly, a method to get the water, which in all cases comes from your roof. Next is the storing of the water in a storage facility that is either underground or kept at ground level. Finally, a method to pump the water to its end destinations within the premises. Depending on what the water will be used for, it is either directed into your main water supply to be used for non consumption purposes (such as washing and toilet flusing) or it can be filtered and made to come into contact with ultraviolet light to make it into into drinking water.

As with many new technologies in developing countries, the initial high start up costs of setting up such facilities as well as limited exposure to these systems makes theirWe at Eqensu work with companies that use significant amounts of water on a regular basis and provide them with a solution as well as a financial package to match. Whatever the choice Eqensu is able to work with you to determine the most suitable solution for your business needs.
