Through research and product development, ILDC ensures that solutions to power problems are safe, durable and environmentally sound.

  • Provide access of power to all
  • Provide economic and efficient power options available to all

Context

It is not visible and it cannot be stored.  Although it has no weight, it can lift and move thousands of tons.  It has no shape and yet it is everywhere.  It is a form of energy that can be harnessed.  Modern Africa could not exist without electricity

Mainstream Forms Of Renewable Energy.

Reasonable utilization of energy from renewable sources, such as energy of rivers, wind, solar radiation, geothermal energy and biomass, is one of the crucial components of sustainable development aimed to generate tangible environmental benefits and energy effects.Forms of Energy109

Together We Produce Change.

One of the targets of ILDC’s local development consortium is to provide sustainable, low cost solutions to the energy needs of marginalized communities through the construction, installation and maintenance of alternative energy electric systems.  Electricity opens the door to a host of technologies that promote education, public health and economic development such as emissions-free light, refrigeration and communication devices.  Without electricity, communities are unable to participate in the benefits of modern advances and are literally left in the dark.  Africa, with its vast reserves of renewable resources which include hydro, geothermal, wind and solar, to name a few, has enormous potential for renewable power production.  ILDC will capitalize on these natural renewal resources to provide green power to local communities while helping to reduce greenhouse gas globally.

The Solution: Choosing The Suitable Energy

ILDC’s local partners are in a good position to help select energy technologies which are appropriate while at the same socially, economically and environmentally relevant.

Integrated Industrial Estate Concept

An integrated approach should be employed to develop large -scale alternative energy and industrial estate projects. Large scales renewable energy should be developed integrated with industrial estate that will be used electricity from development hydropower plant that should promote energy intensive industries as a prime mover to drive economic activity. Using inexpensive electricity could reduce investment, operation, and maintenance cost. Integrated development of hydropower plant and energy intensive industries will make the area as a center economic growth in the country.

Geothermal Energy For Process Heating

It may be well to concentrate the possibility utilization of geothermal energy for non-electricity or direct use such as process heating. Utilization of geothermal energy for process heating may be support to the local agriculture and tourism industries. Direct use technologies are built around the extraction of heat from relatively low temperature geothermal resources, generally of less than 150 C. Because geothermal heat is non transportable (except short distances by fluid pipeline), any applications must generally be sited within 10 km or less from the resource.

Geothermal energy may be both cost effective and reliable in industrial applications. Some industries use steam or superheated water. The largest industrial applications are in pulp, paper and wood processing
Sustainable Rural Energy.

Sustainable Rural Energy

Formulation and implementation of a sustainable rural energy development strategy would result in a positive contribution to the overall rural social-economic development and energy needs.  Such initiative would simultaneously accelerate development and the greater use of modern rural energy technologies for improved energy services and the betterment of rural people.

 

To achieve this, a new thrust in the development of modern rural energy technologies has to be initiated by all stakeholders to consolidate the achievements that have made thus far.  A comprehensive sustainable rural energy policy needs to be put in place in order to support and accelerate the adoption of modern rural energy technologies.
