Case Studies

Solar project, Johannesburg, South Africa

Desktop Study and Feasibility of 500 domestic units incorporating bespoke Solar PV System.

Solar Project

Akome Energy Build was appointed as engineering consultants to investigate implementing a low-cost solar energy system that provided hot water and electricity, which could be fed back to the national grid.

The construction of the domestic units was based on an award-winning technology of sustainable building products, were a single apartment could be built within 24 hours at minimal costs.

To minimise costs of the solar plant it was important to size the systems effectively and utilise local materials and skills to install and maintain the solar systems. Although the project is still at an early stage, there are exciting opportunities for progression to a more detailed design phase.

Energy Review and Audit

Cold Store Factory

After an internal review on the effect of increasing energy bills for the coldstore factory, our client was faced with some important decisions.

Akome Energy Build was appointed as the energy consultants to undertake a review and energy survey of the coldstore refrigeration plant and building services systems. A number of energy cost saving options were investigated including the installation of a Solar PV system on one acre of roof space, the effects of alternative refrigerants, control systems to improve efficiency and alternative types of fuel.

This has been an on-going project were a number of opportunities has arisen for Akome Energy Build to help other companies in the region with their ‘Energy Accounting ™’.
