The Managing Director of Cloud Energy Photoelectric Limited, Theo Nweke, has urged energy solutions providers to move away from traditional solutions and adopt innovative service delivery.
He explained that modern energy solutions should aim at achieving the aspirations of citizens living in the information age. He stressed the need for the all-time availability of energy, conformity with evolving climate standards and deliberately contributing to the acquisition of the new skill levels required to triumph in the knowledge economy.
Nweke gave the advice while receiving an award as the ‘Most Outstanding Energy Solutions Provider’ at the Titans of Technology Awards 2016, a platform designed to celebrate personalities that have contributed immensely to the growth of the society.
According to Technology Africa, organisers of the Titans of Tech Award, Cloud Energy’s boss was recognised for its consistency, innovation and passion in the development of the nation’s energy landscape with renewable energy.
“The Award was conferred on the indigenous Cloud Energy corporate for its commitment to standards, and extended warranty on products and for the premium it places on after sales support and overall systems availability,” the organisers said at citation. They further commended the exceptional capacity of Cloud Energy to install and support energy solutions across Nigeria without a drop in standards. The Award, which took place in Lagos, was attended by the Majority Leader of the House of Representatives, Hon. Femi Gbajiabiamila, and the Minister of Communications, Adebayo Shittu.
Nweke, who commended the organisers for recognising excellence, said winning the Most Outstanding Energy Solutions Provider 2016 was another proof of Cloud Energy’s commitment to increase access to solar electricity for all classes of business and the citizenry. A society with a dependable power supply is a productive society. He expressed concerns over the failure of energy policies and institutions of the country, which he said, has done more harm to Nigeria than corruption itself.
According to Nweke, the award would encourage Cloud Energy as a company to position solar energy as the answer to the current recession and the key to national development.
The governments of the federation ought to adopt solar as the primary source of electricity given the abundance of sunlight in Nigeria, Nweke said, adding that the governments should partner solar energy operators with a view to subsidising the purchase and installation of solar systems. Full of gratitude, Nweke dedicated the award to customers on whose confidence Cloud Energy leveraged to display multiple competencies.
