President Nelson Mandela is nearing the end of his great life now, but once said, “A Vision without action is just a dream. Action without vision just passes time. A vision with action can change the world." Over the weekend, President Barack Obama launched a new power Africa initiative while visiting Cape Town University in South Africa. The President said, "We have got enormous opportunity to unleash the next era of African growth. I see Africa as the world's next major economic success story and the United States wants to be a partner in that success." Some innovative firms in the US are doing just this.
For businesses in Africa to join the global economy, power infrastructure must be a priority. In the power generation industry, power output efficiency and cost effectiveness reign supreme. Finding the perfect balance between needed power and a feasible price for equipment to fit power project requirements is crucial and a large task when it comes to feasibility planning. USP&E Global, a Frisco, Texas based power generation EPC and O&M leader provides technical solutions and answers as well as consulting services, and is a leading expert on projects in Africa.
USP&E partners with other leading US and European firms to maximize power station efficiency, environmental impact, cost effectiveness, and overall customer satisfaction for key businesses and government utility operations in Emerging Markets. Of these partnerships, USP&E has teamed with other firms such as Cronimet Mining and Megatron Federal in order to offer the hybrid HFO and PV Solar power solutions that can save their clients millions of dollars over the life of their projects.
U2 frontman and global humanitarian Bono said recently in Washington DC, “Aid is just a stopgap, commerce [and] entrepreneurial capitalism takes more people out of poverty than aid. We need Africa to become an economic powerhouse" (Global Entrepreneurship Week, Georgetown University). What Africa needs today more than ever is affordable and fuel efficient energy in order to advance into the 21st century marketplace.
Hybrid HFO and Solar Energy that Fights Poverty and Promotes Job Creation
President Obama is on a roll in Africa, and has power infrastructure at the very top of his strategic agenda. "Access to electricity is fundamental to opportunity in this age. It's the light that children study by, the energy that allows an idea to be transformed into a real business. It's the lifeline for families to meet their most basic needs, and it's the connection that's needed to plug Africa into the grid of the global economy," he said Sunday, June 30th from South Africa.
It appears that today, more than ever, what the world most needs from the West is leadership in the way of strategic, aggressive, transparent, sustainable, Entrepreneurship. USP&E founder and CEO Will Gruver believes that the Frontier Economies in strategic growth markets of Africa will be the epicenter of what will be "the most significant bull market in history." Perhaps entrepreneurs and businesses in the west need Africa as much as Africa needs them.
With their hybrid Solar PV and HFO power station offerings, USP&E is at the forefront of firms helping those in the heavy industrial sector to find innovative ways to limit total cost of ownership.
