Indeed, studies have shown that the magnitude and damaging social and economic implications of rising carbon emissions and climate change have underscored the desperate need for sustainable development and to create or recreate a healthy planet for generations to come.

At the other end of the spectrum, we have a great number of masses in Nigeria that don’t even have basic electricity. This is where CleanTech/Clean Energy startups and founders must put themselves in the spotlight by providing electrification solutions to rural and remote populations in cleaner, greener ways. From the use of solar energy to biomass and biofuels for electrification, through the development of solutions for electric mobility, etc. clean energy startups have the opportunity of making giant strides in the startup ecosystem and have an even bigger social impact. In this article, I point out five solid solutions CleanTechs can provide in Nigeria.
  • Solar System Design Software 

Apart from just recreating solutions that are already existent, aspiring and established clean-techs can provide AI-powered software that can help cleantech solution providers to design their solar solution software app. This is what we can readily call SaaS (Software As A Service).

This kind of system designing software can help businesses reduce designing time by 90%, design construction-ready blueprints, automatically find the optimal layouts for maximum possible energy generation and generate estimates by remotely analyzing the rooftops of prospective customers.

IoT Sensors 

CleanTechs can enable both commercial and industrial enterprises to become energy efficient by helping them reduce their energy-related expenses and improving the productivity of their existing assets substantially by providing flagship IoT-focused products. At the crux of this issue are founders developing an ICT solution that can help industrial and commercial energy consumers in Nigeria monitor, analyze and optimize their use of energy. They can provide compact devices that can access data from an energy meter and transmit it to a cloud server, enabling users to access this data from any internet-enabled device. 
  • Smart Roofing

There is a strong need for startups to provide specialized and custom rooftop solar plans for private establishments in Nigerian cities.

This kind of energy solution should be equipped with IoT-powered remote monitoring frameworks that allow users to get continuous updates on solar energy creation. Where this has been developed, it has enabled several customers to reduce their electricity expenses by 100%. 

Final World

Just as the United Nations posits that Sustainable Development Goal 13 is about climate action, which is one of 17 Sustainable Development Goals with an official mission to  “Take urgent action to combat climate change and its impacts”, Nigeria’s founders must align themselves to these goals providing sustainable energy solutions. In this article, I provided the top three energy solutions startups can provide for Nigeria’s teeming population. They include SaaS and B2B solutions that help other startups and businesses design solutions. Second, aspiring and established founders can design IoT and AI-powered sensors that help commercial and industrial establishments to monitor and manage energy consumption and finally, provide customized rooftops that help users observe energy creation for their consumption.
