We are in a position to provide Renewable Energy funding for projects in the range of £60 Million to £10 Billion - 2021
PSECC Ltd approached Lakeside Owners in Portsmouth in 2018 and surveyed the building for Solar PV installations. In 2020 another company installed the Solar PV panels.
In 1995 our CEO was responsible for Researching and helping to write the first Integrated Energy Policy for Portsmouth City Council under Agenda 21 Sustainable Development programming.
The Policy was adopted by the Royal Navy in June 1996.
In 2004 we went onto Coordinating the Energy Network for Hampshire County Council - HNRI programme - Five schools installed with Solar PV & Ministry of Defence advised on Renewable Energy for Aldershot Urban Extention.
We then went onto facilitating the first FREE Solar PV installations for over 300 homes in Leigh Park in Havant, Hampshire
2012 - we are now advising six African Countries on Sustainable Waste Management & Renewable Energy.
Renewable Energy for Africa - Full funding for Waste-to-Energy Gasification plants & Solar Farms - Typically in the range of $75 Million to $3 Billion
PSECC - Twenty four years of Sustainable Development - Climate Change Mitigation experience - we are facilitators and will assist Governments & Councils meet the 1.5 Degree C Consistent pathway by arranging Carbon technology provision EPC companies & funding arranged to assist a Circular Economic model.
USA companies are assisting us in our Climate Change Mitigation work. We are in the final stage of negotiations and contract signing for our $900 million Waste-to-Energy plants for Ghana.
Covid - 19 has revealed to the World how CO2 emissions can be reduced and a new Sustainable way forward is possible if we are bold enough to take it.
PSECC also support Tidal Lagoon Power (TLP) with their exciting proposed development programme for Tidal Lagoons in the UK.
PSECC Ltd is partially funded via DFID & Innovate UK on an Agri-tech Round 8 Collaboration project with the University of Greenwich - Cassava /Solar PV project for Ghana. Ths project will hopefully be launched in the first quater of 2020.
Founder & CEO Alan Brewer MSc since 1995 indicated this can be assisted by the adoption of our "Resource Ownership" concept whereby a Council or client can gain revenue share from our Renewable Energy projects, with NO need for any Council funding - Sustainable!!!
This project will be the start of waste management in Ghana and prevent plastic and other waste going into the oceans. Ghana has 5 million tonnes per year of waste (MSW) and we have over the past two years developed the Gasification project, first for ACCRA and then Kumasi. Project start date will be September 2020.
We have been active in the UK from 1995 onwards and active in Africa - Kenya & Ghana since 2012. We are building and funding Solar Farms and Solar Mini Grid systems in Ghana and arranged a 10MW Solar Farm for Riara University at Konza. We are also active in Mini Grid Solar PV systems & Solar Farms with our funding & EPC partners.
Funding via the USA EXIMBANK will be arranged and it will be used to build a Gasification Waste-to-Energy plants for ACCRA in Ghana, Egypt, Zambia, Ethiopia, Nigeria and Kenya.
2019 - Our Resource Ownership concept was sent to the LEAP programme managers and will be at work hopefully in this Bristol City Leap programme following our targetting in June 2019.
We have been invited to be kept in the loop going forward with this initiative and will submit plans for a 30MW Biomass Plant and also hope to develop several Solar Farm proposals for the outskirts on the City of Bristol, which we have targetted in June 2020.
In Juy 2019 we agreed to offer advice on Sustainable Waste Management in Zambia with Ngozika Onyekwelu of The Bright Future Project in Zambia in Africa Circular Economy Network - ACEN. We will be working closely with the Lusaka South Multifacility Economic Zone in Zambia and we will have Government agreement in July 2020 for Five Wwste-to-Energy Gasification plants for Lusaka in Zambia.
We offer to arrange smaller scale project funding from $10 million to $60 million to make possible a Low Carbon Technology deployment for suitable Renewable Energy projects at a Ready to Build stage. – 1.5 Degree C Consistent pathway for the South of England and also on an International basis. Or for larger projects then £60 million to £10 Billion can be provided.
Our funders are from UK, USA, Netherlands sources who are ready to invest in Low Carbon projects and also large scale infrastructure projects when needed. All projects must be bankable and show a good IRR & ROI and Raedy-to-Go shovel ready.
The recent UN IPCC report indicates that to reach the 1.5 degree C Consistent Pathway then a robust - cross societal approach is required. The UK are currently only at a level of 35% emission reduction on Pre industrial levels of Carbon Dioxide levels.
To get to the required 1.5 degree C Consistent Pathway then an emission reduction of between 80% - 85% by 2050 is a requirement. THE uk GOVERNMENT WILL ADOPT SOON A 100% TARGET REDUCTION BY 2050. PSECC are here to assist clients in meeting these objectives.
Some of our clients have been the UN REPP, UK Schools, Hampshire County Council, Ghana Government to name but a few & current partners in the waste sector are USA companies General Electric (GE).
Past partners have been the UN REPP & UKTi, British Gas and we have worked with SSE, PowerGen, Onyx, OKay Engineering, Freetricity, Arup, Sunpower, Scott Wilson, Mott McDonald, Dulas, Carbon Trust, Vital Energie and Atkins Power. We are hoping to assist Greentech South in the UK with possible funding avenues and Renewable Energy projects.
PSECC Ltd can assist Councils in the UK & Countries internationally to meet these targets by working with them on Renewable Energy projects and if required provide funding mechanisms to show how a Council can gain significant revenue generation whilst adopting a 1.5 Degree C Consistent Pathway.
Twenty three years experience in Energy & Renewable's. We have Researched and helped write one of the first UK City Energy Policies in 1995 under Agenda 21 Sustainable Energy programming for Portsmouth City Council. PSECC have Expressions of Interest in with the Governments of Ghana, Zambia, Ethiopia, Egypt, Nigeria and Kenya to provide full funding & Gasification WtE.
PSECC has been formed to mobilise society into greater action against Climate Change.
“Climate finance” - The World Bank Group is committed to helping countries around the world meet the climate challenge and provides on average close to $11 billion a year for projects that increase resilience to climate impacts and reduce emissions. To reach the 1.5 Degree C Consistent Pathway then between $1.6 & $3.8 Trillion per year investment in Low Carbon technology is required to 2050.
PSECC had been a Not for Profit organisation since 2011 and has been registered as a limited company PSECC Ltd in March 2017 for our Climate Change work & Renewable Energy development.
We have other Limited companies dealing with Africa Solar Farms namely - PSECC Solar Farms Ltd & Simbrofo Light Ghana Ltd UK Ltd.
STATES SHOULD TAKE OWNERSHIP OF THEIR RENEWABLE ENERGY RESOURCES - SOLAR RESOURCE AND GAIN REVENUES
Biomass WtE & Ethanol production plant - Kenya
Climate Change Mitigation in action.
Swansea Bay / Cardiff Bay & Colwyn Bay - PSECC support TLP with this much needed Renewable Energy development programme for the UK. PSECC Ltd had arranged the funding for the Tidal Lagoons but Planning Permission ran out in January 2020 and the project did not get built.
We are active in the UK, USA, Kenya, Ghana, India, Sri Lanka and soon Pakistan. The UK Bank of England & Mark Carney in July 2019 indicated it would cost $ Trillions to fight Global Warming BUT it also would open great Business opportunities. He also has warned recently that the effect of Climate Change on Global Financial Markets will be huge. Climate Change possess the biggest risk to financial security for the coming generation and Market stability now. The Risk must be managed. In 2018 he was of course correct but failed to indicate the rise in Renewable Energy, energy efficiency and the mobilisation of the World Leaders in Climate Change Mitigation to help manage that risk.
Councils & Society have an extremely difficult task of managing operations, formulating Policy & Strategy to combat Climate Change together with trying to move forward in a Sustainable manner along a 1.5 Degree C Consistent pathway. Often other things just get in the way - vested interest of leaders, too complex an issue to resolve, lack of interest, lack of continuity and short sightedness . Our Resource Ownership is one answer that will assist Society to be more Sustainable and lead to a Circular Economic model.
PSECC Ltd have been appointed as Technical Advisors to the New Government of Ghana on Waste Management. November 2017 PSECC were approached by project delivery partner Aaron Armah in Ghana, to come up with Sustainable Waste Management solutions to their 5 million tonnes per year of MSW. In January 2018 initial discussions took place and also in February 2020. Agreement reached with the Government to proceed with new Waste-to-Energy Centres in the Country.
PSECC Ltd have partnered in Ghana with MMW WORLD Ltd
Sustainable Markets N8 University project in Malawi - Africa
PSECC Ltd is assiting this project concept as it will lead to less Deforestation, mitigates against Climate Change and a more Sustainable food base will result. Solar-technology in roofing materials captures and convert sunlight into electricity, Chiller-units to preserve perishable foodstuffs and act as warehouses for the farmers Systems to facilitate electronic payment chains including taxation and rental. Water-harvesting to facilitate cleaning and provision of sanitation needs. Anaerobic digestion systems facilitating waste management and manufacture of fertiliser and bio-gas Lockable units to provide security for traders – traders including women will not have to carry goods to and from Solar shading to provide a comfortable shopping environment for customers and traders Individual stalls/modules can be put together in a grid or linear format achieving scalability.
November 2018 - discussions being opened with Simec Atlantis who own the Seagen technology for potential projects along the South Coast. In 2009 PSECC Ltd had introduced Marine Current Turbines to Hampshire County Council. Siemens bought into Marine current Turbines in 2014 and are major share owner.
2018 - PSECC are working up proposals for Portsmouth City to take advantage of obtaining electricity from this water - Renewable Energy source.
PSECC is a member of Greentech South
As an orgainisation we are here to assist the South in meeting a 1.5 Degree C Consistent pathway inline with the UN IPCC objectives.
We are offering Greentech South build funding for all large scale Renewable Energy projects & large developmet programmes. PSECC would like to colaborate with Greentech South, with them taking the lead with all stakeholders to ensure 1.5 Degree C Consistent pathways are encouraged and undertaken in the South of England.
PSECC Ltd is partially funded via DFID & Innovate UK on an Agri-tech Round 8 Collaboration project with the University of Greenwich - Cassava /Solar PV project for Ghana. Ths project was launched on the 1st November 2019.
Terrence & Cobby of FPE in recent February 2020
meeting with Alan Brewer of PSECC Ltd in ACCRA
Cassava Solar PV project
Collaboration project with NRI at Greenwich - the Solar PV has been installed at FRI building in ACCRA to power the new Cassava Hammer Mill - July 2020.
Cassava Solar Project Hammer Mill
Collaboration project with NRI at Greenwich - progress with the construction of the new Cassava Hammer Mill - August 2020.
We are halfway through this exciting project for Ghana, one that could see 40% reduction in Cassava crop loss in the Country.
We intend to try and roll out the solar and Hammer Mills throughout Ghana with a $100 million development programme and other African Countries.
1.5 Degree C Consistent pathways - The old UK LGMB advised Councils to concentrate on Energy Efficiency first, which is correct BUT Renewable Energy development should also have the same importance and often Planning departments are not focusing on the Climate Change issues and making poor long term unsustainable decisions. Greed & Power play their adverse part in mitigation against Climate Change together with lack of understanding the issue correctly and lack of education together with training.
In August 2019 we were awarded a Grant from Innovate UK : Agri Tech Round 8 for a collaboration project with the University of Greenwich for Ghana. The project is to redesign a manual production process into an automated process for Cassava Flour production, partly powered by Solar PV.
PSECC can assist each Council in meeting Climate Change targets and bring much needed extra revenues over a twenty year period. There will be NO requirement for Council funds to be used for our Climate Change Mitigation projects such as Wind Farms, Biomass Energy plants etc to be built.
I.5 Degree C Consistent pathways require robust action - PSECC can offer clients technology providers such a General Electric (GE) together with funding to increase the chances of meeting the consistency pathway.
We also assist in New Producer Development - example the New Back-Contact Solar Cells - Natcore Inc - New York and New Integrated Waste Management Technologies.
Our Countries of Development
We have been pioneering solar farm developments in Africa since 2012. In Ghana We have been granted a FiT payment of $0.0886 per KWh for our 20MW solar farm at Simbrofo in the Central region of Ghana and hope to get a Power Purchase Agreement (PPA) in place by the end of Mid 2019. A Provisional License was granted and issued on the 20th December 2016. The project has the support of the UK Government REPP programme and we are submitting for funding support in December 2018 for the Pre Build Development work to be completed.
PPA draft issued in November 2017 agreed upon Mid 2019. Possible Build start date late 2019 & operational October or 2020.
New tidal power projects around the Isle of Wight were to be created as a result of PTEC, but this has failed. PSECC Ltd are trying to assist with successful deployment of water trubines in the area and negotiations have and are taking place to try and assist PTEC in 2019.
Our current partners in the Energy & Waste sectors include USA companies and Past partners have been British Gas and we have worked with SSE, PowerGen, Oyynx, OKay Engineering, Freetricity, Arup, Sunpower, Scott Wilson, Mott McDonald, Dulas, Carbon Trust, Vital Energie and Atkins Power. Furure EPC companies will be General Electric (GE) in the USA.
Twenty three years experience in Energy, Renewable's & Waste. We have Researched and helped write one of the first UK City Energy Policies in 1995 under Agenda 21 Sustainable Energy programming for Portsmouth City Council. Portsmouth City could have 100% Renewable Energy supply - Wind Turbines, Biomass Energy Plant, Water Turbines and Solar Farms on the outskirts of the City.
The Circular Economy is a target for all Societies to acheive. The circular economy starts with more Renewable Energy - to the right - what could be possible for Portsmouth - Wind Turbines and all other Renewable Energy projects that will eleviate fuel poverty.
We have to assess risks to investment and political stability of a Country or client and Energy company Off Tacker together with PPA and FIT payments before we can finance a project.
As mentioned before - In Juy 2019 we agreed to develop a 14MW solar farm in the Economic Zone near the Leopards Hill sub station. We are also assisting with Sustainable Waste Management in Zambia with Ngozika Onyekwelu of the Bright Future Project in Zambia & Africa Circular Economy Network - ACEN. We will be working closely with the Lusaka South Multifacility Economic Zone in Zambia.
We were until five years ago a Not-for-Profit organisation and then launched PSECC Ltd & PSECC Solar Farms Ltd and Simbrofo Light Ghana Ltd in Ghana and the UK.
We develop Solar Farms and provide full funding and technology providers for EPC. Ghana - Simbrofo 20MW Solar Farm we are working closely with the UK Government REPP on this project and have their support.
PSECC Ltd are amongst the first developers in Ghana and Kenya for Solar Farms in those Countries. PTL Enterprises in Ghana are our consultants for the 20MW Solar Farm at Simbrofo.
Reduction to Landfill by 100% - LowEmissions
Since 1997 PSECC have pioneered new Waste Management practices and technologies such as Gasification of Waste & Integrated Waste Management Plants. Our plants come with 100% funding packages.
Waste Management in Developing Countries & beyond - Gasification & Integrated Waste Management Plants. We are Technical Advisors to Ghana - First Ghana WtE plant goes live hopefull in early 2021
Since 1997 PSECC have pioneered new Waste Management practices and technologies such as Gasification of Waste & Integrated Waste Management Plants - totally 100% funded via USA EXIM Bank.
In 2017 PSECC Ltd have partnered with the USA company Natcore Inc in New York USA to take forward Solar Farms developments.
