ICE is developing innovative solutions to provide sustainable energy in Nigeria
ICE was founded with a deep empathy for the human spirit, and an ambitious objective: To deliver lower cost clean energy solutions, that empowers the people who need it the most.
Revolutionary ideas begin with a problem: The problem for us is that Nigeria's weak electricity infrastructure significantly hampers its economic development, and it's people are left to fend for themselves. The World Bank estimates that Nigeria experiences the greatest number of power outages; and business owners bear the brunt.
Entrepreneurs are widely considered the life blood of any economy. Our approach is to impact entrepreneurial growth and job creation by providing access to electricity, and at a much lower cost for small businesses.
Leveraging the sun's abundance, we're designing and installing modular solar microgrids, powered by photovoltaic (PV) panels, located onsite (roofs, designated solar parks, etc) complete with a smart metering system, with the capability to monitor energy generation and consumption.
Electricity is the greatest enabler of our time. Still, an estimated 1.2 billion people, 16% of our global population, are forced to feel less deserving of an opportunity to work and learn.
For our pilot program, we have designed and are installing a modular 15kW smart microgrid in Asaba, Delta State. Stay tuned for updates.
We have simplified and streamlined the transition to reliable energy
More than 50% of Nigerians are constantly living without electricity. According to the World Bank, Nigeria experiences the greatest number of power outages monthly. This problem can be a greater burden for small business owners. It has been reported that Nigerian businesses experience an average of 239 hours of outage every month. This energy crisis has led to a deep economic recession.
