    Greetings All, 

    My name is Christian. I have a B.Sc. in Real Estate Mgt, MBA Strategic Mgt and an Msc in International Business Mgt. 
    I will commence a PhD program at the school of built environment Massey University by June 2023 where my research will focus on the management of energy efficiency strategies in the social housing sector.  My interest in clean energy started in my early days as a bachelor's student, my campus was in a remote village where constant power was a big challenge and because of this we were subjected to alternatives such as lamps, torchlights and power plants that emit dangerous carbon emissions into the atmosphere.

    It did not end there, as a real estate graduate who has an interest in incorporating sustainable measures into buildings as it is no news that the built environment generates 40% of annual global C02 emissions. And of those emissions, building operations are responsible for 27% annually, while building and infrastructure materials and construction (typically referred to as embodied carbon) are responsible for an additional 13% annually as per reports from architecture 2030 it is only right to involve my self in the renewable energy space.  

    As the incoming president of "Clean energy for All" (An initiative I am proposing to the University). I have decided to start a solar company as part of my side project while my research is ongoing.  Understanding that lack of access to electricity is a major challenge for more than 1.4 billion people globally, I am committed to creating solutions that will solve this problem in the most sustainable and innovative way possible. There are a handful of homes and businesses that lack adequate power supply to go by their day-to-day activities especially in developing countries and my core goal is to solve this problem.

    I have also made the decision to donate solar powered streetlights and inverters to remote communities in developing countries in my first 1 year of production.

    Please i welcome you all to share your comments, suggestions, or assistance( Mentors ). Thank you very much
