Research and Innovation Program

Africa New Energies is proud to announce a groundbreaking research program aimed at fostering the transition to universal clean energy technology and innovation. With a focus on hydrocarbons and clean energy solutions, this program represents a bold step towards a sustainable future, not just for Africa but for the world as a whole.

Our dedicated team of experts from leading Universities across the globe are leveraging cutting-edge technologies and innovative approaches to tackle some of the biggest challenges facing the energy sector today.

We work with teams from the University of Sussex’s Sussex Sustainability Research Programme as well as teams from Ts21 in Pakistan and the Technical University of Braunschweig in Germany.

Join us on this journey to a cleaner, greener future, as we work to establish Africa New Energies as a leader in the clean energy revolution.

Solar and wind power are unreliable energy sources for underdeveloped countries owing to the expensive infrastructure required for them. Biomass must reckon as a renewable energy source to fix problems with energy storage, seasonality, and intermittency. This paper uses Africa as an example of an impoverished area that fails to fulfill its domestic energy demand.

This research topic is about creating a new way to generate heat and power using hydrogen from biomass as the source of energy. The process involves using a type of fuel cell called a High-Temperature Proton Exchange Membrane Fuel Cell (HT-PEMFC) and a Rankine Cycle, which is a method for converting heat into mechanical energy. This new method could provide a sustainable and environmentally friendly way to generate heat and power.



This research work , undertaken by our team in Pakistan, is about the use of hydrogen as a fuel for internal combustion engines and the reduction of nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions. The study includes a cost benefit analysis to determine if it is financially feasible to switch from traditional fuels to hydrogen fuel. The goal of the research is to assess the benefits and drawbacks of using hydrogen as a fuel in internal combustion engines and to identify ways to reduce NOx emissions, which are harmful to the environment. The research aims to find a balance between the benefits of using hydrogen and the costs involved in reducing NOx emissions, in order to provide a comprehensive understanding of the viability of this fuel source.
