WOIMA did a detailed research study using latest simulation tools for its decentralized W2E power generation solution in Nairobi against the centralized solution.

The key questions in the study were

1. What are the waste transportation savings?

2. What are the power transmission savings?

3. What are the carbon emission savings?

Two points in time (2018 and 2030) were selected to emphasize the significance of growth in population and energy demand. It was assumed that all the solid waste can be collected and delivered to the facilities. The study considered both CAPEX and OPEX impacts in each scenario.

The study results prove what we already know, the decentralized model brings significant savings up to several million euro’s per year. The total savings of the decentralized waste management and power generation model compared to the centralized one are a combination of transportation savings and power transmission savings, not to mention also the carbon emission savings which are significant as well.

Are you interested in this case? We have the tools and know how to prepare similar study in Your city too, consult us for solution. Please download a copy of the report, for free.
