What specific problem are you solving?
According to Africa Energy Outlook Report, more than 620 million people, representing two-thirds of the population in the region, still live without electricity. The main electricity supply in Nigeria is not stable and reliable due to Inability of grid-based power generation capacity to sufficiently and reliably meet the increasingly growing energy demands has encouraged large-scale ownership of expensive generators that run on fossil fuels which is recent increasing concentrations of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere is a by-product of this problem.
Nigeria has 85 million people who don’t have access to grid electricity. This represents 43% percent of the country’s population and makes Nigeria the country with the largest energy access deficit in the world. The lack of reliable power is a significant constraint for citizens and businesses, resulting on annual economic losses estimated at $26.2 billion (₦10.1 trillion) which is equivalent to about 2 percent of GDP. According to the 2020 World Bank Doing Business report, Nigeria ranks 171 out of 190 countries in getting electricity and electricity access is seen as one of the major constraints for the private sector.
The power supply crisis in Nigeria has been a longstanding complication in the Nigerian Electricity Supply Industry (NESI). A number of reforms were necessary because of the crucial role of power supply in national building and development.
These reforms started with the deregulation of the NESI, which began with the privatisation of the National Electric Power Authority (the state-owned monopoly responsible for the generation, transmission and distribution of electricity in Nigeria). The reforms then continued with the unbundling and privatisation of the NESI to create semi-autonomous commercial subsectors.
Despite these reforms, the NESI still faces the challenge of satisfying the power demand which is so desperately needed to meet the Federal Government's colossal target to achieve 20 gigawatts (GW) of available electricity capacity by 2020.
Electric Power Sector Reform Act 2005 (EPSRA) also establishes the Rural Electrification Agency (REA) which is charged with: expanding the main grid; developing isolated mini-grid systems; and promoting renewable energy power generation. The REA is also promoting programmes to achieve more equitable regional access to electricity.
Therefore, timely attainment of sustainable development in sub-Saharan Africa is largely hinged on increasing access to affordable, reliable, and clean energy for all.
What is your solution?
FREE ENERGY GENERATOR (SUSPRO)
SUSPRO is a device that exchange mechanical and electrical energy in a systematic operation without depending on any external source of energy and generate electrical energy as the output source to power such as school, office, clinic, water-pump and home appliances in a sustainable way.
Off-grid power generation is an effective energy solution to curtailing business downtime that unreliable power grid has introduced. This will help to revamp the current economic decline. Low-income countries can readily harness the cost-effectiveness and the availability advantages offered by free energy generator SUSPRO option to meet continuously growing energy demand in the region, without any adverse effect on the environment SUSPRO is a form of free energy source since no external force is required to drive the system. It operates purely on sustainability.
In 2020 we registered a company name SUSPRO based on sustainable energy product/project, we conducted several research on free energy generator of 10.5kw prototype in Maiduguri, Borno State, Nigeria. Our goal is the 10.5kw device, to provide electrical power supply to our targets population.
Who does your solution serve, and in what ways will the solution impact their lives?
We are in the market to offer a new alternative product along side other products in the market, as company's our mission is all about having certain percentage of the market share. SUSPRO is a tech-driven company focus on innovation that bring new features and how our targets population will benefit enormously with our products/service within short period of time.
We are targeting potential customers with the product spec as follows:
* Power rating 10.5KW,
* Voltage 220V,
* Service factor (1.6) 8 to16 hour
Target population as follows:
4. SMEs and
5. Water pump machine
Most of the targeted list above population are heavily relying on diesel generator set due to the nigerian power supply system is not stable and realible, that why they depend on the alternative sources of powering device, while few that can afford renewable energy supply such as solar energy are buying and installed solar energy system for either backup or standalone system.
How are you and your team well-positioned to deliver this solution?
Well, for now our team members are quite small in number because we basically conducted several research and development which we didn't require more people at this stage due to early stage and financial constraints but my field of profession as marketing and sales reps experience gave us the familiarity of our local environment and customers bahivoir and while at the same time we assemble our previous prototype with Geefada Automatiion company with fabrication.
We already have our organization structure on how we want to run the business according to our business plan.
1. CEO and COO
Two of the most essential players in our business will be the CEO and COO. The CEO is typically the big-picture person who controls the company's direction, vision and culture, whereas the COO is primarily focused on the day-to-day operations to keep our business running.
2. Product manager
The product manager will be our go-to on all things related to our products quality. This team member manages the product strategy, vision and development. They typically work closely with the engineering and marketing teams to create and market the product.
3. Chief marketing officer (CMO)
This team member will focus on our customers and how they view our product or service and focus on generating new leads and bringing in money for our company.
4. Customer service representative
Customer service is a critical task to building positive relationships with our customers and clients is the cornerstone of our brand. Customer feedback is is how we continue innovative our products for the maximum satisfaction is or customers.

What is your approach to incorporating diversity, equity, and inclusivity into your work?
As a start-up tech company we wants to be truly a place where innovation and ingenuity thrives, diversity, equity and inclusion has to take center stage. Our company's will actively work to create meaningful change in spite of the history of injustice that has marginalized underrepresented groups within the workplace.
DEI is an ethos that recognizes the value of diverse voices and centers inclusivity and employee wellbeing as central facets of success. To bring those values to life, Suspro will implement programs and initiatives that actively make our offices more diverse, equitable and inclusive spaces.
Diversity is the presence of differences within a given setting. In the workplace, that can mean differences in race, ethnicity, gender, gender identity, sexual orientation, age and socioeconomic class. It can also refer to differences in physical ability, veteran status, whether or not you have kids — all of those are components of diversity.
Equity is the process of ensuring that processes and programs are impartial, fair and provide equal possible outcomes for every individual. We want to get compensated fairly for our work, we want to be challenged, to learn and to contribute. People often choose an employer based on those things, which boil down to equity.”
Finally, inclusion is the practice of ensuring that people feel a sense of belonging in the workplace. This means that every employee feels comfortable and supported by Suspro when it comes to being their authentic selves.
