ICT can reduce SA’s energy consumption (31/10/2013)
The South African energy crisis and the need to manage supply and demand has motivated State-owned power utility, Eskom, to establish and implement aggressive goals and targets to support consumers in the drive towards reduced energy consumption.
In addition to its Integrated Demand Management (IDM) programme, which makes funds available to consumers who support reduced energy demand or consumption, Eskom has successfully rolled out phases one and two of a residential mass rollout programme encouraging households to install energy efficient fittings and devices. To date approximately 965 000 households have been assisted, and the third phase is to follow shortly.
Industry has now suggested to Eskom that the residential program be followed by a commercial mass rollout programme. The details of this have yet to be stipulated, but industry players believe that implementation of newer technologies, equipment and processes will go a long way towards achieving energy savings.
The challenges of a smart grid (27/09/13)
It is no secret that South Africa’s national power grid is under severe pressure, and the country’s energy supply is unreliable and insecure. In Winter months the grid at times gets alarmingly close to the brink of shutdown. Power utility, Eskom, is faced with ongoing crises, and at the back of peoples’ minds is the ever prevailing possibility of a recurrence of rolling power blackouts with which the country was beset in the later months of 2007.
A solution that can contribute to overcoming this situation is the ‘smart’ grid. The smart grid combines ICT and leading edge intelligence capabilities with existing electrical infrastructure to deliver real-time energy information and knowledge. It empowers smarter energy choices, and has the potential to transform the energy business and use of electric power throughout the world. It can without a doubt help support energy needs, significantly enhance electricity distribution, and generally create a more comfortable future.
EES enters the PV renewable energy sector (31/08/13)
EES, an ISO 9000 certified company, which provides management, engineering and technical auditing solutions, has embarked on a contract in the renewable energy sector, applying its engineering project management techniques to two solar Photovoltaic (PV) plants in the Northern Cape. These plants form a significant part of the extensive solar energy developments currently being undertaken in the Northern Cape and surrounding areas.
In continually adapting to industry requirements, EES is using its project management capabilities to move into the burgeoning field of renewable energy. The company strongly believes that the current move to alternative energy resources in South Africa is crucial in a country desperately needing to balance energy supply and demand through a progressive new supply policy drive.
