Energy transition from fossil fuels to sustainable systems will enable us to meet today's energy demand without compromising tomorrow’s reserves.

Shaping the future

Solar power is anticipated to become the world's largest source of electricity by 2050. Government policy and investor confidence are backing this growth sector that has the potential to bring about systemic change.

The benefits of converting a renewable local resource into an affordable, vital commodity are substantial: increasing energy independence; regulating fossil fuel prices; reducing pollution, waste products and the collateral costs of global warming; improving environmental and human health; generating employment and promoting education & skills training.

Sustainable Energy Ltd.

Sustainable Energy Ltd. (SE) was established as a Bahamian company for the purpose of becoming the leading local developer of large-scale solar power and sustainable energy storage in the Bahamas and Family Islands. SE is to install and operate its own solar energy parks, delivering energy to its clients at a fixed rate over long-term contracts of 15+ years. We combine the expertise of APS and CTE-IPC, two companies with a complementary focus on renewable energy.

Both our name and our company ethos lay claim to improving the future of the Bahamas by investing from the outset in the directive shared by the Government:

“Consider environmental Impact and ensure that all future work is designed for sustainable development.”

Working Together

In collaboration with the local Bahamian Government, public institutions and the business community, SE aims to provide bespoke renewable energy solutions that will convert one of the island’s abundant natural resources into an inexhaustible commodity for the Bahamas and its Family Islands.

Independence

One of our key advantages is our freedom to optimise technological and financial strategies without being tied to one supplier or vendor, enabling us to source multi-product solutions that provide the best fit. The same advantage applies to project-specific financial solutions.

Human Energy

The creation of affordable, clean and renewable energies will be about harnessing more than just Bahamian solar power: in addition to employment, SE is committed to providing education and technology training in a new growth sector that is also a global industry of the future.

By comparison

With an estimated 40% of the population in Bangladesh having no access to electricity, the government introduced a scheme known as solar home systems (SHS) to provide electricity to households with no grid access. The program reached 3 million households as of late 2014 and, with more than 50,000 systems being added per month since 2009, the World Bank has called it "the fastest growing solar home system program in the world."

SE believes this to be a completely viable solution that can be emulated in the Bahamas and Family Islands

It's about time

“We have proved the commercial profit of sun power in the tropics and have more particularly proved that after our stores of oil and coal are exhausted, the human race can receive unlimited power from the rays of the sun.”
