Pioneering energy efficiency and green advocacy in Africa – Asset Magazine

Solid Green was featured in the July 2017 edition of Asset, with a profile piece on Solid Green Consulting director Chilufya Lombe, who chats about green building advocacy and why resource-efficient development is becoming the status quo throughout sub-Saharan Africa.


Born in Zambia and raised and educated in Botswana and Zimbabwe, Lombe studied electromechanical engineering at the University of Cape Town before being exposed to the building industry while working for a local consulting engineering company. Early in his career, with no background in sustainability, he attended a talk on innovative HVAC solutions by Australian mechanical engineer and leading sustainability consultant, Shane Esmore. “I was inspired by the really innovative ways that heating, cooling and comfort can be provided in buildings,” Lombe says. “The appetite for this type of innovation is still growing in Africa, but these insights gave me a goal in terms of where our industry needs to go.”
