News Flash

  • EPC, Aptech Africa has commissioned a 12 MW solar PV project in Juba, South Sudan for IPP Ezra Construction.

Ezra has self-financed this project as part of its initiative to increase the contribution of renewable energy to Juba’s grid. This project will address the UN Sustainable Development goals 7 (Affordable Access to Clean Energy) and Sustainable Development Goal 13 (Climate action). This system has the potential to prevent 9,600 Kg of CO2 emissions per day, or almost 3800 tons of carbon emissions per year.

This system will provide much needed electricity to over 525,000 people who live in Juba, South Sudan.  Improved access to electricity will have a positive socio-economic impact on the entire city, improving services for hospitals, schools, and businesses.

Aptech also recently supplied, installed and commissioned a stand-alone 11.2 kWp solar PV system for an orphanage in Juba, South Sudan.

Green Building Africa promotes the need for net carbon zero buildings and cities in Africa. We are fiercely independent and encourage outlying thinkers to contribute to the #netcarbonzero movement. Climate change is upon us and now is the time to react in a more diverse and broader approach to sustainability in the built environment. We challenge architects, property developers, urban planners, renewable energy professionals and green building specialists. We also challenge the funding houses and regulators and the role they play in facilitating investment into green projects. Lastly, we explore and investigate new technology and real-time data to speed up the journey in realising a net carbon zero environment for our children.
