Renewable energy Biogas Industry
Explain your idea in details:
Libya have a lot of waste , and a lot of problems with electricity, so my project would help my country also project is A friend of the environment. In conclusion my idea is to collect the organic waste and to product electricity. My clients are the farmers, biogas industry will product an electricity and heat , because they use a lot of electricity and they need uninterrupted electricity for their farm. so i will give them a cheap electricity, and i will take their waste to keep their farm clean, also i will give them the Fertilizer that will get out from the reactor. *Advantages of my idea: 1- the feed i am going to use is Renewable so it wont cost me money, just the transportation would cost, but it Will not affect because i will build a local plants, so no need for the transportation. 2- there is no other companies in Libya working in this sector. 3- uninterrupted electricity and a free Fertilizer for farmers.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
Reduce environmental pollution is the main key for my idea,and my vision after like 10 years i will do an upgrading for biogas, so we can use it as a fuel or natural gas. and that would help my country to storage amount from petrol, so our petrol wont finish fast. Why would my company be better than competitors? 1- I will try to have the price of electricity less expensive than the electricity company. 2- There will be a maintenance team and when any problem occurs with a customer, the team will have it in less than 24. 3- My service will help to preserve the environment.
Plans for implementation and sustainability
The source of revenue will be electricity. The price of 1kw will be explained to the customers. At the end of the month, the team will go to the customers and see how much electricity was consumed by a measuring device installed on the customers' homes. then they will pay. Marketing plan will be "mouth to mouth", which is to communicate with the target group directly, since many farmers do not use the social media. Profitable Business Model : i think it need like 3 years to be profitable business.
