The Future of Renewable Energy Through the use and deployment of latest technology, will boost the ratio of renewable energy sources, such as wind and solar power, to help achieve a sustainable society.

  • Using Arthur Energy Technologies Solutions to Realize a Sustainable Society
  • Full Mega-Solar Power System Solutions from Installation to Maintenance and Repair
  • Solar Powered Vehicles and Tricycle Stable under the Harshest Conditions

Increasing global economic and social activity had and is still raising huge demand for energy, water, and other resources, as well as increasing the CO2 (Carbon dioxide) emissions and other harmful chemical by-products that cause global warming. Therefore for us to build a sustainable society and reduce CO2 emissions and other harmful gases like nitride Oxide and Sulphuric Acid, we need to limit using scarce natural resources, such as fossil fuels (Coal, Premium Motor Spirit, Diesel, Etc.) and boost the ratio of renewable energies, such as wind and solar power energy system.

Renewable energies are inexhaustible (every split of second that passes by the son releases energy that is capable of providing for our yearly energy needs) and easy on the environment, but issues remain for cutting generating costs and ensuring a stable supply. Feed-in tariffs and similar programs encouraging renewable energy development began appearing in the 1990s, and are now being used in close to 100 countries and regions. Counties like Japan, China, and USA introduced an energy feed-in tariff, and demand for large wind and solar power systems is growing as investors and companies join in. Nigeria Energy sectors among others are also coming up with measures that can help increase the rate of adoption of this new mode of energy.

Scientist don’t hurry up when there are no needs, after calculations of some of the available energy sources and the dangers they pose to our environment and the excavation costs among others, they then decided to shift their attention from the imminent depletion of our current elements for the supply of our world energy, hence scientist are working tirelessly to see that the dangers we are imposing upon ourselves environmentally, physically and otherwise experiences a sudden shift and this cannot happen except with coordinated corporation and participation from the consuming masses.

Arthur Energy involvement on renewable energy development includes highly efficient generation and transformation technologies and batteries, as well as the control systems that ensure a reliable supply of power. We will use the power system technologies and knowhow that we have acquired and harnessed over the years to help resolve Africa and Global social Power issues and achieve a sustainable society as regarding energy consumptions and its attendance challenges.

Concerning all other forms of energy the end is visible and certain

Full Mega-Solar Power System Solutions from Installation to Maintenance and Repair

Solar power generation fluctuates with the weather and the hours of sunshine. One of Arthur Energy strengths is to stabilize this power generation, due to highly reliable products and control systems, and our technical ability and know how.

We also have a strong track record in large-scale power Installation (engineering, procurement, and construction). For example, Arthur Energy handled the entire process from engineering through procurement, production, installation, and final adjustments for Operation light up Anambra state, in 2015/2016.

Building a mega home solar plant for local authorities, companies, and individuals wanting to build megawatt-capacity plants in and outside Nigeria has been a massive success thus we have help to reduce harmful chemical emissions as possible as we could, in most of this installation noise pollutions has been greatly reduce in some quarters and most off grid areas in Imo state and Asaba are life examples.

Solar Powered Vehicles and Tricycle Stable under the Harshest Conditions

IF you have ever been to an environment where they depend solely on Generators for power when you look at how chaotic and noisy the environment is, it gives you a shiver and nostalgia, most times many people prefer the calm environment where there are no noise and everything is just cool-on, but you discovered that even if your environment is as noiseless at it seems the moment you step off that arena, you enter into a street encumbered by Noises of motorcycles and all other modes of Public transport now consider having to install relatively cheap technology on your own roof and power your house, gadgets and even your car. For free! The Earth receives more energy from our sun in about one hour than humans consume in an entire year. That’s why solar power is the second leading source of renewable energy in the world today.

Increasing level of CO2 emissions and Noise Pollution in Nigeria and Africa through the use of motor vehicles and Tricycle led to the development of and Assembling of Our First Solar Powered Tricycle named ARTON

In Nigeria today boarding a mass transit systems appears to be the only means of Transportation which in most cases is always noisy and of cause a high pollutant of the environment. The Tricycle you know (Keke napep) is designed for carrying up to 4 passengers and 5 passengers and ferry hundreds of thousands of passengers in towns and cities across the country, mostly across short distances. They have provided jobs for thousands of tricycle drivers. But, they have two major problems (Noise Pollution and Air Pollution)

This means of transport have been banned in countries such as India and Sri Lanka. Whilst India and Sri Lanka are using the force of law to outlaw the smoking rickshaws, many other countries are voluntarily replacing them with cleaner versions running on compressed natural gas (CNG) or liquefied natural gas (LPG). Despite the fact that there are no attempts in Nigeria to either phase them out or enforce higher standards on them, we are planning to systematically bring a change to these situation by introducing tricycle which runs entirely on solar energy.

The benefits are obvious:

  • It is clean and non-polluting with zero emissions, and also doesn’t need fuel, the cost of which has been rising in Nigeria.
  • It depends solely on Emissions from the sun. The solar powered tricycle branded as Arton is powered by renewable energy from the sun and does not make use of Premium Motor Spirit (Fuel) or Automotive Gas Oil (Diesel) or any form of refined Oil or Gas as a main or alternative source of power which is the first of its kind in Nigeria where the high cost of fuel and poor electricity supply is affecting the socio – economic development of the country.
  • The solar-powered tricycle does not just hold an advantage over its conventional counterpart in how clean it is – it also trumps it in terms of performance. Possessing a 200 amps battery with a lifetime of 3-5 years, the solar-powered tricycle can travel distances of up to 10 Miles on a single charge.

Our sun, Sol, is powered by nuclear fusion. It produces energy when hydrogen fuses into helium, according to Albert Einstein’s famous E=MCequation. We can’t safely perform fusion on Earth yet, but we can harvest the energy produced by Sol’s fusion from pumps, collectors or photovoltaic (PV) solar panels. Such installations are referred to as “active solar.”

All of this translates into enormous cost savings for the tricycle operators: although a solar-powered tricycle costs N1, 000,000.00 compared to the conventional tricycle which costs about N650,000 if bought newly, the absence of fuelling costs and the lower maintenance costs far outweigh the cost difference between the two models. If the government of the day decide to subsidize its production or having other corporation engaging in mass production of parts then this invention will compete effectively in times of Price with its predecessor the kekenapep

”A conventional tricycle operator makes about N9,000 daily and spends about N3,500 daily on fuel and tickets. He also spends about N40,000 annually on maintenance of his tricycle. When you take away the cost of fuelling and steep maintenance costs with the solar-powered tricycle, it gives him the power to earn up to N1,100,000 One million One Hundred Thousand yearly. This is almost the cost of a two new conventional tricycle,”

7000*20=140,000 per month if He works 20 days a month and 140,000*12 =1,680,000.00 One million six Hundred and Eighty thousand naira excluding his Daily ticket fee which varies depending on the clime

If the government of the day decide to subsidize its production or having other corporation engaging in mass production of parts then this invention will compete effectively in times of Price with its predecessor the kekenapep

Nigeria has identified transportation as one of the priority sectors for emissions reduction in its low carbon growth strategy called the Nationally Determined Contributions (NDCs), which are part of the Paris Climate Agreement, which we as an organization are pursuing with uttermost vigour. Although estimates for the number of tricycles in Nigeria are hard to come by, it is undeniable that a large-scale adoption of solar kekes or even complete replacement of conventional ones can go a long way in achieving these NDC targets.

Conventional auto rickshaws (also known as keke) run on dirty fuel which results in emissions that can lead to major health risks. The pollution from these tricycles can cause serious health problems like lung cancer and asthma, which could be a major public health issue for densely populated cities across Nigeria. India discovered this on time, therefore, in 1998, the country passed a law that allowed only auto rickshaws running on compressed natural gas (CNG) to operate. Studies have shown that this transition from petrol to CNG has led to a significant reduction of air pollutants in the cities.  Nigeria could emulate this example and yet take it a step further with the introduction of solar powered keke in order to cut emissions and improve air quality, which would indirectly reduce health cost significantly.

It is also encouraging that there are currently no regulations that will hamper the adoption of solar-powered tricycles. But governments can also encourage adoption through the use of deliberate policies:

For example, the use of conventional tricycles has grown in many states as a result of the banning of motorcycles for transport. In some of the states, the tricycles were subsidized by government. Similar subsidies can be given for the purchase of the solar-powered tricycle.

Also, the National Automotive Design and Development Council which is responsible for the development of a domestic car manufacturing industry and funded by a 2% auto duty collected on each imported car could give grants to cleaner modes of transport.

Nigeria will not be the first place where a solar-powered tricycle has debuted – a hybrid tricycle which runs on a combination of electric, solar and pedal power was developed as far back as 2014 in the United States.

However, neither of these solar-powered tricycle models has gotten widespread adoption, especially in regions and cities that use it most for mass transportation. Thus, it potentially puts Nigeria in the position of being the first country to use such an innovation on a wide scale and being a leader in adopting renewable energy technology for keke transportation.
