About

What is HiGi Energy?

OUR MISSION


HiGi Energy solves water hyacinth disasters by turning them into environmental friendly charcoal for cooking, reducing the pressure on cutting down trees as 2.6 billion people cook with charcoal & firewood 3 times every single day. With eco-fuel as the first product built, we will then introduce more energy products such as solar installation service to close the gap between solar manufacturers and keen customers.

Why?

As of starting point, Philippines has more than 100 million people and 65% are still cooking with firewood and traditional charcoal. The targeted market is currently over 35 million across Luzon and Mindanao, in the first year of operation.

The reason we start with the invasive plant named “water hyacinth” because it could grow at average 7.28 ton per hectare per day, depending on weather conditions. Others have been harvesting water hyacinth to make handicraft, but the demand could not compensate the exceeding growth rate of water hyacinth, and thus the idea of converting water hyacinth into sustainable cooking energy was born.

OUR VALUES

Parallel with the core values of the United Nations, we want to be part of the movement of Sustainable Development and help to achieve the agendas by 2030.

  • CLEAN

    We envision communities embracing clean energy and healthy lifestyle.

  • SUSTAINABLE
