Made In Nigeria Initiative
Renewable Energy brings it's own rewards in terms of increased energy
supply and zero-emissions, the up-front costs of building Wind and
Solar projects have been an obstacle to broad-scale deployment. These
higher costs are a result of the labor and production costs inherent in
the manufacturing process.
almost all Renewable Energy products that are used in Africa are
manufactured in Europe, Asia or the USA. As a result, the more Africa
deploys, the more it helps outside economies. Synergent recognizes the
need to turn the tables so that the products and equipment that are
used in Africa to generate clean energyare also made in Africa.
this way, the higher up-front costs of renewables becomes a benefit as
the capital spent on production is building regional capacity.
Nigeria is uniquely positioned to become a regional production,
distribution and training hub for other African countries and can
supply and support the expected growth of renewable energy across the
region through the "Made In Nigeria" Initiative.
has already begun introducing new technologies for manufacturing within
Nigeria, starting with the DyoCore Micro Wind Turbine that has been
optimised for the African market. Additional products that will enter
production in Nigeria include portable LED lighting kits, smart battery
systems and solar frame assemblies.
