Private luxury lodge in northeast Botswana. The lodge is currently undergoing a complete renovation and has decided to implement renewable energy to cater for its energy requirements. NSE provides a full EPC/development service implementing a complete microgrid solution that consists of a hybrid solar system (PV and batteries) along with backup generators. An energy efficient hot water system is also implemented to reduce the lodges load demand. A new bulk AC reticulation network is also implemented.
The overall micro-grid design is expected to reduce the lodge’s dependency on diesel by 90%, thus reducing carbon emissions and improving sustainability. In depth training will be given to local maintenance staff to educate individuals how the system works and should be maintained.
