The urban environment and security (26/05/2015)
“To reduce the risk of becoming a crime statistic, South Africans are increasingly being confronted with pressure to implement progressively more advanced technical solutions. Many people have come to believe that purchasing a solution will prevent crime. However, technology is only one of the components of successful crime prevention.”
This is according to Rob Anderson, Executive Director on the Board of EES Africa (Pty) Ltd, an ISO 9001:2008 certified company providing management, engineering and auditing services throughout Africa. Anderson is a specialist in integrated security and electrical engineering, and has firsthand experience in witnessing prevailing crime trends.
He explains that a successful integrated security solution comprises both technology and, as importantly, people. Used in conjunction with each other these elements can produce a local urban environment, which is crucial to crime prevention.

The case for the use of biomass renewable energy (31/03/2015)
The provision of renewable energy has been recognised in South Africa as a very feasible solution to help overcome the country’s current dire energy crisis. South Africa’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) which commenced in 2010 when the Department of Energy (DoE) issued its first Request for Proposal (RFP) for new generation capacity, has made great strides and been lauded a success by renewable energy industry players the world over. As at Window 3 of the REIPPPP a total energy capacity of 3915 MW had been awarded.
Biomass, a lesser known but very viable form of renewable energy, entered the REIPPPP in Window 3 with the first biomass project being awarded and an investment of ZAR1061 million (US$108 million) allocated to it. However Rodrigue Kamba, Project Engineer for EES Africa (Pty) Ltd, advocates an increased allocation and investment in biomass in South Africa, and in this article discusses how it is used to generate energy.
