EGF focuses on promoting the conservation of natural resources through expanding forest cover, improving water security and providing renewable energy and energy efficient technologies as smart alternatives with no negative effects on the environment. Because energy is a key resource in household, institutional and industrial operations, access to affordable and suitable clean energy for all is what drives us. Preventing the exploitation of these safer energy resources is lack of knowledge, lack of access and misinformation, thus creating a gap that requires intervention.
Equity Group Holdings, through Equity Group Foundation (EGF) seeks to increase awareness of the benefits of clean energy for cooking, lighting & heating for both domestic industrial use. By tapping into solar, water, wind and bio-fuels as energy sources to provide heat, lighting and electric current to run households and industrial machines, the environment is preserved, in addition to the reduced cost of energy incurred.
Billion Invested In clean Energy
Biogas alleviates two major environmental problems: the global waste epidemic that releases dangerous levels of methane and the reliance on fossil fuel energy to meet global energy demand.
Solar irrigation systems increase access to water for farming, and are robust, portable, efficient and long lasting with a potential market of 1M small scale farmers and households at a cost of Shs 50K and above.
Together with our partners, we support efficient utilization of energy through energy audits and funding of retrofits and grid tied systems necessary to reduce power consumption in both commercial and residential establishments, in order to switch to more sustainable and environmentally friendly energy sources such as solar electricity, solar water heating and biomass energy.
We support the productive use of energy (PUE) around mini-grids, developed in areas without the main grid, for activities such as water pumping & Irrigation, aeration for aquacultures, refrigeration & cooling machines as well as poultry lighting. In addition, we support value addition in agriculture through solar PV in milling and packaging.
We facilitate access to clean and purified water though financing the acquisition of water storage tanks and purifiers for institutions, as well as households for domestic and farm use.
