EcoMetrix Africa offers techno-economic assessments and technology due-diligence services to investors, project developers and technology developers in the area of new energy technologies like biomass gasification, landfill gas to energy, geothermal energy. A special area of expertise is Carbon Capture and Storage (CCS), used for capturing carbon dioxide from concentrated (chemical processes) or diluted (combustion processes) sources and subsequently transporting it to a site where it is injected a geological structure underground.
Implementation of New Energy Technologies
Building forward on our experience in Europe introducing new energy technologies like CCS, we provide assistance in developing first of kind commercial pilots, building public private partnerships and roll out strategies and implementation plans. Our team member Lodewijk Nell has been involved in commercializing waste to energy technologies and building a large public private CCS partnership in the Netherlands bringing together around 70 million Euros worth of development capacity.
Energy Innovation Financing
Apart from carbon financing there are many other financing sources relevant to energy projects that employ innovative technologies. Other financing options can vary from international research & demonstration grants and export promotion subsidies to soft loans from development banks and equity financing.
EcoMetrix can assist in promoting the project in the most optimal way fully in line with the requirements and objectives of the envisaged funder or financier. Currently EcoMetrix is collaborating with Eskom in OCTAVIUS, a large international project consortium sponsored by the European Commission.
