043: The Energy of Haiti with Christian Lecorps

November 5, 2019

Christian Lecorps grew up in Haiti without reliable electricity. He was 4 when his bedroom caught fire during a blackout, and 7 when he almost got electrocuted.

20 years after that fire,  powered by the passion of changing the fate of younger “Christian”s” and of anyone who would face the same issues, he got his degree in Electrical Engineering from Worcester Polytechnic Institute ( Massachusetts, US ).

Atlas Prime NRG was then born from that unstoppable desire to make a difference. Atlas Prime NRG aims at making all the small islands, and developing states, energy independent, assist in reversing climate change, and prevent extreme weather patterns to effectively saving billions of lives.

Atlas' solution is called CARIES which is short for Compressed Air Renewable Integrated Energy Solution. The startup aims to produce drop-in replacement for diesel and natural gas electric generators in developing markets that has negative emissions, the highest capacity factor in the energy industry, and can be scaled up to the size of power plants to power entire cities and islands.

Today we talk about renewable energy and how we can get started on reducing our carbon footprint and saving on our electricity bills.
 
In this episode, I am joined by guest hosts Zahra Alleyne and Kamilah Evans, and our featured guest Mr. Irvin Davis of Davis Ecolife.
 
Davis Ecolife sees embracing renewable energy as the way forward for upcoming generations. The company is of the view that the region has an abundance of wind, sunshine, water and in some places geothermal energy, and these resources are underutilized. The company plans to use these resources in a manner that would lessen the region's dependency on fossil fuels.
 
Currently, the company provides innovative products and solutions aimed at creating a cleaner, more sustainable and cost-effective future for residents and businesses across the Caribbean.
