= equilibrium + energy + supply
The name Eqensu comes from the combination of three words: equilibrium, energy and supply. We believe that no one form of energy generation can provide an economy with its energy needs. Changes in the environment and limited energy storage capabilities, means that a number of different sources of renewable energy are required to cater for base and peak demand of electricity.
Eqensu are an energy consultancy unlike any agencies in the energy sector. We are focused on providing the different stakeholders in the energy sector with a knowledgeable and fast turnover service.
Our target market are countries that have been classified as developing countries. We however prefer to use the term newly industrialising countries (NIC). This countries represent a market of huge potential due to chronic under development in their energy infrastructures.
We focus our consultancy on the provision of electricity that is derived from renewable energy sources, this is in part borne from the numerous opportunities and favourable environments that NICs have and our sincere belief that our days of relying on fossil fuel are numbered.
At Eqensu we understand a number of the problems that impede the speed of development in NIC countries. The largest impediments to renewable energy projects are the often high start up costs attributed to developing renewable energy projects and the perceived fear of decentralised energy by nationalised utilities who are concerned by the prospect of independent power production.
A further factor that slows the rate of adoption is the cultural and knowledge gap between the different stakeholders in the energy sector. It is our ability to understand all perspectives (that of the financiers, manufacturers and end users in NICs) that gives us our speed and competitive advantage.
In order to facilitae acceptance of foreign companies into developing countries, we ensure that all investors into the renewable energy space comply with relevant local content policies. This may take a number of guises ranging from the use of local skilled and semi skilled labour to local equity shares and / or listing on local stock exchanges. Whatever the chosen methodology, we ensure that local industries can also benefit from foreign investment.
