Entrepreneur to host green-energy seminars
A green-energy entrepreneur is to host a series of events designed to cut fossil fuel use and pollution.
Mohamed Hamza's Dragonfly company will three hour-and-a-half seminars at Hamilton's Pier Six on Friday and Saturday.
Mr Hamza said: “There is a ever growing need in island nations to accelerate the adoption of business solutions that reduce carbon emissions on a megaton scale.
And he added: “Almost all of the technology to meet our energy requirements in Bermuda exists today.
“Dragonfly's role in Bermuda is to focus on the market barriers that reinforce the status quo and prevent capital from flowing to sustainable solutions with compelling returns.
“It's our mission to promote the use of renewable resources through the implementation of sustainable or green technologies.”
Mr Hamza said: “We want as many people as possible who are interested in Bermuda to come along.”
The flyer for the event carries a picture of Mr Hamza's daughter Isabelle, aged 2, standing on a map of the Island.
Mr Hamza said: “We used a photograph of her because it's her future we are preparing for. This issue is very important — it's all about our future.”
He explained that renewable resources could be used in a hybrid approach set against current energy costs from traditional sources to deliver cheaper power and environmental benefits.
He added: “Our primary objective is to engage in the business of introducing, deploying, establishing and managing ‘next-generation' renewable energy technologies in island communities.
“We are seeking to deliver durable economic and social benefits to Bermuda and other island communities. Our emphasis is on harnessing sustainable, locally-available and renewable resources.”
Secondary, but related business objectives include the identification of relevant transformational technologies suitable for deployment in island projects and the methods and processes used to link such technologies.
“We intend to provide the maximum positive effect in each project through the identification and implementation of scalable energy strategies and their ongoing management,” he added.
The seminars will be held on the lower level of Pier Six on Friday between 12.30pm and 2pm and from 6.30pm to 8pm.
The Saturday event will run from 12.30pm to 2pm.
