A mechanical engineering team led by the immediate former Minister of Power, Prof. Chinedu Nebo has disclosed its invention of an innovative renewable energy powered generator.
The engineering team said the power system would completely run on renewable energy sources like sun and biomass to generate electricity without fossil fuel.
It codenamed the power invention ‘power-seed wed machine’. The preliminary details of the system was presented to the Minister of Science and Technology, Dr. Ogbonanya Onu on Monday in Abuja by Nebo when he paid Onu a visit in his office.
According to him, his engineering team had spent time on the design which he said would be the next generation of power systems they would deploy, having also invented a power system that uses minimal fuel to generate optimum electricity.
“We have also designed one that does not need fossil fuel and that will be the next generation of our designs made by Nigeria by Nigerian engineers for Nigerian populace,” said Nebo when he presented the preliminary design details to Onu.
He said through a power ovary, the system will harness the electricity potentials of renewable sources to power homes and offices in the country, adding that homes and offices in Nigeria would soon be able to power their activities less expensively.
Although he did not state when the renewable energy powered generator would be deployed or commercialised, he however noted that his team was test-running it Enugu and that it would be able to generate electricity from any part of the country.
