ECOSMART unveils smart renewable energy

ECOSMART Consortium has rolled out a set of renewable energy packages that energize both urban and rural areas. The intervention is aimed at enhancing economic, Security and Environmental sustainability in Nigeria.

The United Kingdom Energy Catalyst Round 8 and EC8 programmes are meant to address the need for clean, affordable, and secure energy in Sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia.

The feat, which represents advancement in Anaerobic Digestion, AD, based low-cost solar power mini-grid plant in Jos, the Capital of Plateau State, making it the first UK-built plant to debut in Nigeria when it’s launched.

Anaerobic digestion is a sequence of processes where micro organisms breakdown biodegradable materials in absence of oxygen, used for industrial and domestic purposes to manage waste and to produce energy.

A statement issued on behalf of ECOSMART Consortium by Energy Industry Development Initiative, EIDI, said the
upswing at Jos, Plateau State Capital, is part of the ECOSMART Consortium project, established to generate a faster and more efficient digestive system than what is traditionally attainable.

ECOSMART consortium team is made up of five collaborators from the International Community and other tech experts, including five Nigerian professionals with the Energy Industry Development Initiative, EIDI. This adventure, includes LEAP Micro AD UK the Lead Partner from the international Community.

The statement assured that the extensive network experience, strategic engagement, market research, business model development, Stakeholders engagement, and other variables that have been put in place by the group, the use of agricultural waste as feedstock to produce biogas as well as fertilizer, upgraded in Plateau State, will help to maximize benefits for Nigerians.

Already, residents of Ibiade Community in Ogun State appear excited over the technological breakthrough by ECOSMART, that converts waste from Agriculture and solar to produce biogas for cooking. This is in addition to organic fertilizer in both liquid and solid forms, as well as electricity power solutions for healthy, Eco-Friendly & Sustainable Living.

The concept is designed to maximize soil use and convert fertilizer in a ratio beneficial for soil management, supporting local, sustainable agricultural practices.

The Hybrid Plant (Nigerian renewable energy enterprise partner), runs on a co-digestion of combined fruit and vegetable waste, and cow dung of roughly 30kg solid per day, which includes potatoes, banana peel, watermelon, cabbage cucumber, spinach, and carrot, according to EIDI.

According to the statement, Solar PV is about 4.56 kWh with 12 pieces of 380w, the solar system produces about 6kWh daily and total battery storage is 400Ah, of which 20% is used to power the system,

In addition, the groundbreaking concept combines two sustainable technologies to produce energy that is connected to buildings that are not billed and therefore enjoying free energy from the plant for test and trial purposes according to customer usage experience.

ECOSMART mini-grid technological innovation,
combines two sustainable technologies that produce energy for household use free of charge, is focused on improving the lives of about 80 million rural dwellers in Communities that have no access to on-grid electrical power and experience to be energized.
