Uninterrupted access to electricity is a prerequisite to economic growth, resilient communities and increasing quality of life. The planet is starting to understand the consequences of using fossil fuel sources. We know we have to change our perspective on energy production and consumption in short order if we are to keep a habitable planet for future generations to come.
At the same time, there remain areas of the world without reliable access to energy, renewable or otherwise. Rolling blackouts and interrupted services are holding back progress in many countries. In Africa, the population now stands over 1 billion with hundreds of millions of those people in countries south of the Sahara having no reliable access to electricity. We have been working closely with our partners in Africa, and other countries, to solve problems like this, powering progress using hydrokinetic, wind and solar power.
ENERGY SAVING REFRIGERANTS
Zoetic has selected key energy efficiency technologies that can provide immediate benefits such as substantial energy savings and emissions reduction. Energy efficiency is as critical to dealing with climate change as renewable energy generation. Global cooling is a key target as air conditioning needs are projected to triple by 2050 as a result of warming and the growing middle class in Asia and Africa.
HYDROKINETIC POWER GENERATION
We use specially designed hydrokinetic turbines to harness the energy in flowing water more effectively than has been traditionally possible. Quickly deployed, partially or fully submerged in deep or shallow waters, our systems are ideal for supplementing electrical supply and infrastructure at existing dams – or for rural electrification by extending power generation capabilities to remote river areas.
Traditional hydropower projects require costly infrastructure builds, present social and environmental challenges, and take years to complete. In contrast, Zoetic’s hydrokinetic solutions can be delivered in a fraction of the time, with quicker Return on Investment and reduced risk.
