Summary of Initiatives and Prospects.
Potential opportunities for AWE in Nigeria
- Itoga village rice-field irrigation AirborneWindEnergy
- Waterways transport
- Fishing kiting, fishing trolling,
- Waterways resistance use of kite systems
- Mobile generator vehicle using AWECS.
- Using AWECS energy gains to form and store hydrogen.
- Global business development director for
- Paravanes in waterways
- KiteLab Group set of tech shares underway.
- Argungu Fishing Festival
International Fishing & Cultural Festival AIFF
in Kebbi state
- Raise state and event flags by kites.
- Teams competing keeping a kite up in the air when there is calm.
Running around is one event. Another is to
manually crank a
two-line tensional tower.
AWECS methodologies in water: ocean current off SE South Africa is a
world class multi gigaWatt opportunity with Airborne Wind Energy
Technology. "One can keep the biggest generators & anchors on shore &
drag vast trains of drogues in the flow."
12-MAY-2010 to 14-MAY-2010
WindPower Africa 2010 Conference
Wind Power Africa 2010 is the premier international event on wind energy
in Africa hosted by the African Wind Energy Association.
Wind Power Africa 2010
Conference and Renewable Energy Exhibition
Cape Town, 12-14 May 2010
Official Event of the African Wind Energy Association
Organised by Omega Investment Research
Display? Considering AWE model or moderate demo, perhaps in
coordination with others.
Online Students for Wind/AWE course
This category of students is not restricted to a
geographical location. They will be given access to Bridge-Link
course materials/contents online. They will as well interact with their
lecturers/tutorial assistants online. However, they will sit for the
mid-semester and terminal exams with other categories of students. The
various exams would take place in either in Ibadan or Lagos.
|Itoga village irrigation opportunity
- Badagry, Lagos,
Nigeria, Africa Is the spelling:
"The correct spelling is
and not Badagri."
Unconfirmed close geographical coordinates: 6° 26' 0" North, 2° 56' 0" East
Google Maps style for coordinates +6° 26' 0",
+2° 56' 0"
GeoHack practice for Badagry
- WindLift notes, DaveS notes, JohnO notes,
- Wind profile:
- Rice field irrigation.
- Terracing or not?
- Points of pumping?
- Months of need?
- Source of water? Heads involved?
- Water table under field?
- Irrigation schedule desired? Quantity? Estimate of total work
- Set of surrounding airports are to be identified along with wind
- Daily changes from Gulf of Guinea influence
Rice production systems in Nigeria: a survery
- Rice cropping calendar for irrigated field
- Ecology for the opportunity?
- Cropping schedule?
- Land preparation?
- Crop establishment?
- Bird control?
- Harvest and post harvest?
- Altitude of the opportunity field?
- For the opportunity field, what is the water control system fact?
- What is the flooding profile?
- What is the wind history for the months pumping is needed?
- Energy storage opportunities?
- Could kites be used in bird scaring?
For the opportunity field, what is the fact on the bird challenge?
Could the AWECS double in purpose: pumping/generating and bird control?
- When the AWECS is not needed for irrigation, could the same AWECS
supply solutions for other near activities?
- Could the AWECS be off field sending electricity for electric pumps
at point of need?
- Rice milling
Africa: AWE Training Camps
The regional AWEIA
rep for Africa has spawned the concept of
AWE Training Camps where people can train to handle AWECS.
(KG) AWE mentor Dave Santos with our Africa regional AWEIA rep
are forming the outlines of what could be a movement throughout the
world. Engineers at AWE new starts, technicians who will be
handling fielded AWECS, operators, managers, extra-hands, etc. could do
well to become skilled with safe arts and skills involved in AWECS.
Hands-on building and flying sport-sized AWECS can be a good preamble to
activity in nomadicAWE, residentialAWE, and even commercialAWE and
opportunistic kite flying, Argungu Fishing Festival,
Irrigation and AWES in Nigeria
nigeriacamera: The World Bank is to inject 400 million dollars into
irrigation development projects in Nigeria over the next four years.
Noted: Sept. 13, 2012 How might AWES serve Nigerian
water to reservoirs of low or high head by use of ready AWES that may
passively launch and land. Drop the water for irrigating crops; when
head is substantial or when excess water is held, let the drop
generate electricity to feed village grid or village batteries. [sent]
