The United Nations COP27 largely anointed natural gas as the transition fuel as the world decouples from hydrocarbons. I am happy that Tekedia Capital portfolio startup, Egoras, will lead that redesign by unveiling hybrid generators in Africa. Our generators will work on petrol and LPG (cooking gas) and the product is ready. If you buy one, Egoras will handle the refueling via aggregated gas supply. In other words, you never have to go and buy gas because the team will take care of it via a subscription model.
But we are doing everything possible to reduce how much gas the generators consume. In our R&D, we’re also looking at self-charging generators that can last up to 22 hours after charge. This breakthrough will help our generators have up to 80% less gas consumption. The gas will only power the engine to charge the battery for 4 hrs and the generator will run on the charged battery. We also report that we have industrial machine systems which can retrofit most plants to work on LPG.
Do not tell me that hydrocarbons are evil and the world should wean itself of them. I understand that; I lived in the village and loved that natural ecosystem. Yet, hope is not a strategy. We will help build the technologies of the future even as we build the ones of today.

We understand our obligation to save the earth. We will build technologies of the future even as we build the ones needed today.
The COP27 is correct – natural gas is a great transition fuel. We will help to provide technologies to help Nigeria and Africa move from petrol/diesel to gas. Talk to Ugoji Harry and our team on your industrial systems. We began by refurbishing generators. Now, we can make them. Who knows—we can make a plane in future. #EngineersBuildNations
