In Nigeria and many developing countries, power outage is a major problem. However, there are many technologies that can help to mitigate this problem, let’s look at some of them:

Car Powering the House



Our electricity bills this days can be a snag, getting more annoying after a hard day’s work only to get back home with no light, with the Nissan leaf an innovation that is set to not only reduce carbon emission but also help in powering up the home, Nissan LEAF lithium-ion battery can power up the house and at the same time getting charged with the help of the of a PCS (Power Control System) connected to the household’s distribution board that converts power from the high DC of the car to 200v AC for the house and vice-versa. One thing we love about this is that the Leaf and e-NV200 vans can be used as mobile power station where there is low power supply or even disaster hit areas for emergency power.

Salt Solute Lamp



Engineer Aisa Mijeno, a Filipino inventor after living with the people of Butbut (in her country) for some time discovered that they all depend on the moon light or kerosene lamp to run their night activities so she decided to come up with an idea to help them spend less and save more by designing a led lamp powered by a glass of water mixed with two tea spoon of salt capable of lasting 8 hours straight up for about six months before changing the anode. This also come with a USB port used for changing portable devices such as phones and mp3. We definitely need this to be mass produced in Nigeria, ‘let there be light”, we plead.

Garbage Electricity



The tons of waste measured annually across the globe is so high that some even decide to ship them down to lesser developed countries. With the advance in technology, waste is no longer a thing of err… waste but a great source of energy in the power sector. Take for example, Covanta Energy Corporation, having a plant that burns up every waste thrown on the streets of Alexandria and Arlington, Virginia, and some parts of the District of Columbia and Maryland producing 23 megawatts of electricity capable of powering 20,000 homes, isn’t that an impressive one?

Water Generator




With just 4 gallon of an average tap water your house is on a light up all with the help of an emissionless generator that produces up to 5000 watts of power for straight 4 hours, by turning on the start button this kicks the battery, pump and turbine to a start, this was solely designed for emergency purpose and can be used inside a room due to the fact that is a “No fume No poison” device with 50% less noise making compare to the normal fossil powered ones. All the maintenance needed is draining and spraying.

Solar Powered Generator



Unlike a solar system that requires big time installation a solar generator is a DIY device that could come portable or big depending on its capacity or your wants. This kind of generator depends on the sun to get fueled having an inbuilt battery, inverter to be used on at any point in time, some of this generators comes with external portable connectors that allows you to connect your devices like your phone without being connected to the house and this is awesome for camping and emergency power-up.

Solar Power System



Countries like India, China and the U.S.A are already taking the lead globally when it come to the investment into renewable energy. Africa which is the hottest continent on the planet is not doing so much when it comes to renewable energy but the fact is that if we decide to invest in solar power, we will not need as much of a wide area compared to the less hot continents and this kind of power generator could be installed anywhere like our home which may be expensive initially but cheaper in the years ahead when you compare with the fossil fuel generators.

Powerwall Batteries



A kind of flat battery that hangs on your wall carrying charges of up to 10kwh but the new designs go as far as 14kwh getting its power from the sun or a power grid. it comes with a preinstalled cooler to regulate the temperature. Although many companies are now diving into the production of powerwalls with Tesla taking lead, this power pack allows you to monitor your power usage over a mobile app through the internet. The main idea of this invention is to power the world with solar power in a small system.

These are some inventions and technologies that we can use to reduce or eliminate the effect of poor electricity supply and outages in Nigeria and other developing countries. Investors, government and individuals can take steps to make them accessible to a large part of our population thereby improving productivity, security and general quality of life.

The guy above me took my glory but I won't say anything. The God of Jacob that I serve will definitely judge.

I'm happy that I make STC (second to comment) though

By the way,

We don't need high-tech like this in Nigeria. When we use solar technology to draw and consume all Suns energy, what energy will be left in the future

I hate it when a particular generation ain't considerate. If that's how the past generations did, what energy will be left for us today

Innovative and educative, some I never knew existed. I remember the story going round then when late Bola Ige was minister of power and steel, the directors at NEPA then were the same people into importation of generators into Nigeria. So if power got fixes, their own business will go burst.

The only Solution to power problem in Nigeria is


TOTAL ERADICATION OF CORRUPTION


If you doubt it, go ask Singapore or even Malaysia

Nawa ooh for white people self

Was it not last week I was thinking + doing my research on how I can manufacture a generator that does use fuel.
Not knowing this guys had done a thing like that.

Basic amenities (light to see road first, potable water, basic education, security, good health care) are not in place yet, and you want car-powering-house technology? For your dreams, abi?

First of all, does the Nigerian Government understand the importance of Technology? How can they when they are illiterates and pen-thieves running after their own pockets.

Do you know that for Nigeria to be a technologically developed country, we need at least $100 Billion dollars annually and consistently for at least 10 years into our education system (Primary, Secondary and Tertiary institutions? And use it judiciously?

Did you see any black man well-funded research institutes anywhere in the world?

Do you think that other countries just "wish" technology and development into their countries?

It's a long story jare.

All Nigerian can boast of is Pencil Production and bunch of e-fighters fighting over mediocre leaders who are not concerned about the development of the Nation

"To be a president of a country means to be a member in a board of directors with " U.S" as the board chairman ."

It is only what the board decides that happens..

Nigeria cannot move forward unless it resigns from that board..
