A re-introduction.

Steve Harvey smiling

Greetings.

I am Amechi Eze Charles.

I am not Steve Harvey. He’s cool though.

I am the following things….in no particular order;

African, problem solver, husband, father e.t.c.

I’m also very adept at solving challenges and creating opportunities using information technology tools.

There’s a lot more, but I’d rather not bore myself…or anyone reading this.

This is a channel through which I give some of my thoughts life as words.

I hope they resonate.

If they don’t, then I don’t care what you think. Go read someone else’s blog.

Cheers 🙂

Nigerian business power struggles.

Power lines

I’m honestly fed up with how everyone talks and lamentations about power issues in my country.

Here’s a different approach; I want to make it a personal challenge…not for Nigeria, or Africa, mind you. Just for me and mine.

Here goes.

Challenge:

Power cuts since before I was born. Poor electricity distribution and generation. No data-driven improvements to the power sector, and the “common man’s” apathy as icing on the cake.

The Solution:

A hybrid energy generating grid consisting of solar, geothermal, wind and a backup diesel/petrol/gas/bio-fuel generator.

How achievable is this as a 10 year project? Is it too expensive for one man to achieve? I do not believe so.

Watch this space for progress reports. And wish me luck.
