Direct Energy Givings (DEG) is forged to respond to the issues of energy poverty and its associated energy usage constraints through fostering affordable renewable energy, and optimizing the effectiveness of home usage. Its twofold mission are to create/increase energy access and home appliances operational effectiveness through clean energy support and affordable home appliances repair services respectively. Though DEG repair services serve everyone, its fundamental goal targets low income appliance owners who can not afford the monthly cost of home warranties, neither bear the long waiting time from overstretched big repair companies.
Establish in Charlotte, North Carolina as a nonprofit, its repair services will cover Charlotte and its adjacent cities, while its clean energy access program will target working with countries in Sub Saharan Africa in reduction strategies of their carbon emission and renewable power generation footprints through their UNFCCC committed Nationally Determined Contribution (NDCs).
DEG is also focused on the engagement of women in clean energy access creation and awareness as custodian of household energy usage. This accounts for clean cooking, clean lighting, and productive use and entertainment.
To enhance public-private sectors partnerships in countries’ energy transition from high reliance on fossil to clean solar PV generation and energy storage, DEG targets developing partnership projects. These projects will address the issues of untimely energy access in government/public facilities delivery productive services in Governance (local governments offices), Health (public healthcare centers, and Education (targets community colleges) under the project name, Governance Health Education Energy Access (GHEEA)
To foster household energy storage application in off-grid community, DEG is seeking funding to pilot test an innovative concept developed as Distributed Renewable Energy Storage System(DRESS). DRESS is a renewable energy generation and storage business model aimed at creating affordable and “as needed” electricity access for off-grid consumers. Details found Uber projects section.

Renewable energy access support
Joining the global crusade for climate change with mitigation and adaptation interventions to keep global warming at 1.5C, DEG was established with twofold mission. Its mission of creating/increasing renewable energy access especially in Sub Saharan Africa will be enhanced through renewable energy project partnerships and interventions, aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emission from fossil fuel energy sources, while increasing their renewable power generation footprints as per countries’ respective committed UN NDCs.

1. GHEEA-Liberia’s Factsheet
As a renewable energy project developer startup , Direct Energy Giving (DEG) has developed a solar PV public-private partnership project with investment interest in Liberia, West Africa. The project is titled Governance Health Education Energy Access (GHEEA), and aims to transition fossil fuel generation of electricity in Government’s run facilities delivering productive services in local governance structures, healthcare and educational institutions to solar PV generating systems. The twofold outcomes are 1. Create/Increase sustainable energy access at these institutions and 2. Contribute to fulfillment of the Government’s Paris Agreement’s Nationally Determined Contributions commitments of 10% GHG emission reduction and 30% renewable energy footprint by 2030.
Information information about this project :
Output capacity: 2.2MW
Est. Investment cap: US$4.2 M (debt/equity, both)
Est. project Life: 20 years
Primary offtaker (End users): Government of Liberia
Project Developer: Direct Energy Giving
Project site: Gbarnga,, Bong County, Central Liberia
Phase 1 target end user institutions:
1. Gbarnga local Government Building
2. Phebe Hospital
3. Bong County Technical College
Execution phase: 3
Est schedule of completion: 5 years
Proposed feasibility study budget: $US13,890 (seeking grant support )
DEG is seeking investment funding opportunities for this project, and available to speak with potential investors.
2. Distributed Renewable Energy Storage (DRESS)
DRESS’ business model will integrate solar PV systems and business operations processes to make off-grid power available and affordable. It will address the Solar Home System (SHS) household capacity and incremental components waste control gaps by adopting a system and process of marketing rechargeable portable storage carriers mainly to women as custodian household of power usage. Unlike minigrid that uses poles, cables, etc for distribution with incremental capital cost in addition to its generation cost that must be recovered through high tariff, DRESS will build rechargeable facility along its distributed solar generation systems to recharge returning discharged storage carriers of varying outputs according to end users power needs. DRESS is distinct from SHS and Minigrid in the offgrid energy access space as:
1. Operations expense (opex) intensive than capital expense (capex) 2. Opex generates community job and derivatives of businesses in transportation and storage carriers repair services
3. The Call As Needed (CAN) gives users the option to call for energy they would need in a given period opposed to Minigrid that may not not serve not necessarily serve disperse population/communities without considering cost recovery options with high tariff and availability constraints.
DRESS energy access model began in 2020 at the University of North Carolina at Charlotte (UNCC) as an access innovation concept then titled Distributed Generation + Energy Storage System for Commercial Off-grid (DiGESSCO). The rationale as it is was to build a commercially driven off-grid energy access system away from welfare access. There are available video and PowerPoints that attest to earlier milestone presentations at the NSF-UNCC Innovator $2000 prize innovator showcase and the UNCC- EPIC Energy Innovator finalist competitions respectively.
A total of $89,523 is needed to implement its first pilot project in Liberia, West Africa.
