Waste2Energy Global exists to solve the critical issues facing Africa, both large and small.
Partnering with Suppliers, Project Developers, Multi-Donor Funders and top consulting firms in the Renewable Energy, Waste conversion and water desalination markets, we begin to understand the challenges in Africa and how to overcome these challenges by providing in-country support in professional services, new disruptive technologies, monitoring & management of solutions, implementing our best practice service desks to ensure clients services are operational and delivering 24 hours for 7 days a week for 365 days of the year.
Encompassing one of our partners ABC Strategy – first, we identify and negotiate an agreement with an Anchor load client (often in agro-processing) to ensure sustainability; then we identify, or help develop, small local Businesses; and only last do we target domestic Consumers, who are often the supporting workers in the Anchor or Business clients.
Targeting business clients offers a more secure customer base and attracts private investors, but many donor agencies focus more on the number of households connected in the short-term rather than long-term viability, BUT delivering renewable energy solutions at a far lower levelised cost of energy (LCOE) using NEW disrupting technologies than current renewable energy solution like Solar, Bio-mass or wind will improve the viability and feasibility of the projects.
We have 4 key phases in our delivery method, Discovery Phase, Feasibility Phase, Delivery/Build Phase, Operate & Monitoring Phase
Each Opportunity or Project has a certain amount of complexity and we need to understand the complexity and this is complexity generally materialises in the Discovery & Feasibility phases.
1- Discovery Phase
We start with initial Discovery Phase using mainly by our internal resources namely;
- Country Managers (in-house local resources) whose role is to understand your country, conditions and the environments, assess the maturity of the project developer and if there is an ABC Strategy in place, project funding requirements and funding partners, understand local government support and
- Sales & supporting services team (financial & engineering) that review each opportunity and make sure the opportunity meets the initial requirements to move to the next phase and assign a Project Manager & Team.
The deliverable is an Opportunity Management Plan that is used for the GO/NO GO decision.
If it’s a GO decision the the Project manager and Team are assigned and they move to the next Feasibility Phase.
2- Feasibility Phase
A feasibility study is used to determine the viability of an idea, such as ensuring a project is legally and technically feasible as well as economically justifiable. It tells us whether a project is worth the investment—in some cases, a project may not be doable.
This phase very much depends on the complexity of the project and may require external consulting and funding support.
Each Opportunity/Project is measured on its own because the technology and solution will have different levels of complexity
3- Delivery/Build Phase
The standard best practice project management core phases such as planning, build-up, implementation, commissioning, hand over and operate & support.
4- Operate & Monitoring Phase
Then finally after project has been completed and handed over to the Service Support team, who monitor, manage and support our products and services via world class service & support tools (Service Desks) to ensure that our products & services operate at expected service levels.
Why we focus on multiple solutions
Our disruptive low cost magnetic energy generators (MEG) is delivered in a container and can support optional water from air, waste plastics to fuel & internet LAN solutions.
Can you imagine if you could provide a remote small business anchor client (like a agro-processing business) with a low cost renewable energy solution from 5kW to 5MW @ $0.08c per kWh, which is delivered in a 20ft/40ft container that is monitored and manage remotely via satellite communications and can also provide;
- A Water from Air (WfA) solution using excess (off-peak) electricity at night, yes drinkable water or a desalination plant in a container to convert waste water for agricultural or drinkable/potable water for the local community.
- A mobile waste plastic to fuel conversion plant that provides jobs, income to surrounding communities.
- Excess satellite bandwidth for a wireless local area network (LAN) to provide internet access to anchor client, surrounding businesses and local community to support education and fuel innovation
- Cloud based business services and solutions to local business to enable them to manage their businesses effectively and efficiently.
all connected to a mini-grid in a sustainable way.
Using energy as an enabler that underpins all other African basic requirements such as traditional electricity requirements – energy efficient refrigeration, lighting, heating, cooling ……….
