Our partners, Enhar, are sustainable energy consultants in Melbourne with services encompassing renewable energy, energy auditing and sustainability grant funding assistance. Enhar’s services are designed to support client organizations who are committed to improving energy efficiency, reducing running costs and improving productivity and work environments. Their team has extensive experience of working with businesses to implement energy efficiency, through energy audits, grant scheme applications (e.g. CTIP and SRSB, Australia) and verification of energy savings. Their experience is at the ‘coal face’ of assisting individual organizations to improve energy efficiency through changes to hardware, software and behavior. They have worked with Schools, manufacturers and local government to identify energy saving opportunities, create business cases for upgrades and improvements, and measure the savings. Enhar understands the success factors for effective energy efficiency projects to make them meaningful to real organizations facing real pressures. They understand the commercial context in which Australian organizations make their energy and productivity-related decisions, and are helping us to implement the same in Pakistan as well.

MISSION

The Reenergia-Enhar team believes that energy—especially access to electric power—is a basic pre-condition to human economic and social development. With 20 percent of the world’s population without access to this power and another 20 percent without access to reliable power, one can understand the reasons why vast human populations are disadvantaged and unable to compete. With affordable and clean energy announced as one of the Sustainable Development Goals for the UN 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, this cause is now globally recognized. This is evident through leading initiatives such as SE4ALL and the recently announced Break through Energy Coalition.

Reenergia-Enhar advocates the development of energy independence and reduction in grid dependence. We understand how energy security for nations and individuals depends on a creative balance between distributed generation and the reliance on a centralized grid. Centralized grids are not only expensive to extend and maintain, they are oft unstable and purely reliant on a centralized source—we have all witnessed enough major power blackouts in the past 15 years all over the globe from developed to developing countries to affirm this claim. We firmly believe that future energy policies at all levels from national to local will need to address and spread reliance on localized distributed generation.

Reenergia-Enhar is formed around the notion of early phased adoption of renewable technologies by all—our team pushes for adopting and sourcing the latest solution rather than pushing old and tired technology that is naturally making its way to developing countries through over or continued production. Naturally, the greatest challenge to this early adoption is availability of financing and not clients’ risk appetites. Our goals include pioneering the evolution of the RE sector in Pakistan, the development of energy independent communities through distributed generation with a focus on off-grid rural communities, and improved quality of energy access and its data acquisition for on- and off-grid consumers. Something which we have already started showing some success in!

GEOGRAPHIC FOCUS

Rennergia-Enhar focuses primarily on Pakistan, given its huge energy crisis, with more than half the population either living off-grid, or having substandard quantity and quality of electricity from the grid. Our secondary geographic focus is Asia and Africa as most of the unserved and underserved populations of the world, in terms of electric power, reside here; yet these two continents will be the harbingers and drivers of future global growth. Pakistan in particular and these regions in general fit well with our team’s focus on early renewables technology adoption and on distributed generation and in the longer run.

More than 20 percent of the world's people have no access to electricity and guess where they live?

PROJECTS

  • Village Growth Accelerator Program


    Reenergia-Enhar in partnership with the Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF), along with its consortium partners (Enclude Solutions, Indus Earth Trust, and Inerrant Finance) launched an integrated ecosystem approach towards creating smart village “clusters” by tapping into its expansive network of implementing partners to holistically resolve community-based challenges. Our flagship project “Village Growth Accelerator Program” aggregates good market acceleration practices with access to finance, viewing energy access at the core of its development ethos.

    The program will act as an intermediary financial service provider, network builder, connector, advisor, and mentor to bridge the gaps and restructure the village markets to allow more accessibility to growth. Ultimately, this aggregation approach to integrated, energy-centric rural development aims to both finance and accelerate livelihoods, indigenous employment and enterprise development; support infrastructure, water and community physical infrastructure; and ultimately poverty alleviation. It will nurture village clusters to become their own energy supply companies (ESCOs) and the bread-baskets of Pakistan.

  • Renewable Energy Credit line market feasibility study for Agence Française de Développement-France


    Reenergia-Enhar with Enclude BV, Netherlands has recently undertaken the renewable energy credit line and guarantee scheme feasibility study for renewable energy investments in Pakistan. As a part of the study we also designed the technical assistance program for local financial institutions with State Bank of Pakistan to promote the clean energy investments in Pakistan with better financing opportunities available for investors and consumers, we believe Pakistan will be able to harness its abundant renewable energy resource. The study takes a deep dive into the energy markets of Pakistan by categorizing energy markets into medium to large IPP projects (5 to 30MW), captive and grid spillover projects (<5MW) and small off-grid projects (<1MW).The study along with financial assessment also devoted special attention to demand side assessment (the renewable energy investments), socio-economic and environmental impact assessment, policy and regulatory setup, quantified realistic market potential.

  • JUST LIGHT IS NOT ENOUGH


    “Just Light is Not Enough” was conceived to provide power through installation of mini-grids for enterprise development in villages in addition to basic lighting needs. This is first of its kind project in Pakistan initiated by Pakistan Poverty Alleviation Fund (PPAF), advised by Reenergia-Enhar and implemented by Indus Earth Trust.

    The aim of the project was to develop and implement an investment friendly and financially sustainable mini-grid solution which would not only help the client villages progress themselves through development of enterprises, but will also ensure that appropriate social mobilization was undertaken to help the eager communities understand the system and its aims. The villagers are sold electricity on fixed rates and they are made responsible for the operation of the whole system. This helps generate employment as well as ensures financial viability of the project.

  • Field Survey to Assess Grid Energy Solutions in Baluchistan


    Reenergia-Enhar has partnered with Enclude B.V, Netherlands to assess grid energy solutions for the Lasbela district of Baluchistan.

  • Renewable Energy based hybrid Electricity solution for AICT


    Al-Hamd International Container Terminal (Pvt.) Ltd. (AICT) is Pakistan's premier off-dock container terminal. Located close to the Karachi port, AICT has been serving a growing number of import and export customers from Pakistan's shipping and freight forwarding industry since business operations commenced in 2001. Their 800,000 sq. ft. terminal and 30,000 sq. ft. indoor shed space is strategically located near Karachi port and the main industrial zone. However, limited grid supply of electricity is available (25-30 KVA substation). Thus a 400KVA diesel generator is utilized during the day while another 100KVA during the night to fulfill the electricity demand of 100KVA to 125KVA resulting in high operating costs. The facility essentially functions as an off-grid facility.

    Taking AICT off-grid with a renewable based hybrid solution – The solution provided by Reenergia-Enhar is the installation of an off-grid solar powered system along with backup batteries to make up for the diesel generators and night hours demand respectively for the AICT building. Reenergia-Enhar has taken this project of installation and owing to the in-city strategic location and the financial stability of AICT, the visibility of this project (energy independence, Karachi, within city off-grid, GAC Logistics the key foreign partner going green, the only green terminal in Pakistan)—a beneficial project for all stakeholders setting a new trend in the industrial area.
