ACTIVITIES. It is our belief that new possibility is a function of good thinking. Consequently, our core business is cast upon creativity, inventiveness and innovative technological developments. The need gap of applying technology to various fields such in renewable energy, agriculture, etc is so glaring globally but more particularly in sub-saharan Africa. We are focused and committed in playing a part towards bridging this need gap. INNOVATIVE APPROACHES It is apparent that in Nigeria the method of charging mobile phone using this technology is novel.
Expected impact of your idea on sustainable development
The mobile phone industry in Nigeria is quite enormous with a growing market. It has been estimated that there are about 159 million mobile phone I active use in the country ( www.techpoint.ng 5/5/2016). Shipment of new GSM phones are forecasted to rise almost 60% by year 2020 in Nigeria making her the largest market for GSM in Africa (www.africa- business.com). It is also projected that by 2019 smart phone in use in Nigeria is expected to rise to more than 23 million ( www. Statists.com). So the market in Nigeria is in an upswing. However, a persistent downside in the mobile phone industry in Nigeria is the problem and challenge of power supply to charge supply to charge these multiplied millions of phone. It is estimated the despite Nigeria government efforts at addressing this issue, the average power availability in the country is less than 5 hours pet day ( [email protected]). The market presents great opportunities for deployment of alternative means of powering these mobile phones due to poor and unreliable power supply of then grid system
