KSEL Consulting focuses on advising individuals and businesses on how best to use or modify their existing infrastructures to meet their ecological and financial objectives. In addition to providing advice, we often implement and deploy solutions on behalf of our clients.
What is the correct direction to move in? What are the most appropriate environmental decisions? Do we trade off environmental against financial? These are the questions that now plague every business. By using our expertise, we can provide you with the information to help you make the right decision and guide your business into the future. Whether this is just an Energy or a Carbon Audit or that of a full Feasibility Study or Tender Preparation, we have the skills and the knowledge to assist your business make the correct decisions.
We conduct Energy Audits for small villas to large corporations to access how much energy is consumed and to develop a plan to make the building more energy efficient and hence reduce the environmental and financial costs. We utilize sophisticated measuring and monitoring equipments and advanced software to determine the benchmark of your existing power usage. From this we make recommendations as to how to achieve the reductions. If required, our staff can implement these changes for you from training programs to electrical remediation work.
A Building Audit can be conducted pre- or post- construction. Working from your architectural diagrams we can evaluate the energy consumption and environmental standing of the constructions. In both Pre- and Post- construction we will be able to recommend changes that will reduce your energy consumption and improve your living or working conditions while reducing your ongoing costs.
Our Feasibility Studies aim to objectively and rationally uncover the strengths and weaknesses of the existing or proposed technical project. Opportunities and threats as presented by the environment, the resources required to carry through the project, and ultimately the prospects for success are all taken into account. In its simplest term, the two main criteria to judge feasibility are cost required and value to be attained. Generally, our feasibility studies precede technical development and project implementation. We provide Feasibility Studies into Renewable Energy projects which include PV Solar, Thermal Solar, Wind Power, Micro Hydro Power and more.
Our Project Managers will bring the organization and resource management skills to bear on your project. It is imperative that to bring about the successful completion of the Project, that specific goals and objectives are defined, communicated, implemented, and completed in a disciplined manner.
Solar Water Pumps are, for many, a more reasonable source of energy for pumping wells than windmills. While both windmills and solar powered pumps are useful in remote areas that are not tied to the grid, solar power is generally both less expensive than its wind-powered counterpart, as well as easier to install.
For locations beyond the reach of power lines and with little wind, solar pumps offer a clean and simple alternative to fuel-burning generators. Using the principle of 'thermo dynamics' they require no batteries, no high-voltage electricity, no engine consuming gasoline or diesel fuel - only harmless, low-voltage, solar-generated electricity, eternally available and pollution free and requiring very little maintenance.
Surface Solar Pumps
The most economical DC water pumps are surface (non-submersible) pumps. They can reduce pumping energy consumption by half or more, compared to conventional AC pumps. Surface pumps can pull the water up to 10 meters (suction capacity) and lift or push up to 100 meters. Solar pumps have a wide range of applications and can provide as little as 2 liters per minute and up to 250 liters per minute. Surface pumps must be protected from weather.
Submersible Solar Pumps
Submersible Water Pumps are used in well pumping up to 10 meters, pressurized and non-pressurized irrigation, home water systems and livestock watering. There are no limits to how large solar-powered pumping systems can be built. But they tend to be most competitive in small installations where combustion engines are least economical.
