The case for CSP in Africa’s solar energy mix (03/08/2015)
In recent years, we have seen a global move towards the use of renewable energy, in particular Photovoltaic (PV) solar energy. However, PV generation is not necessarily the obvious choice for Africa. Concentrated Solar Power (CSP) may be a better alternative, as it is particularly suited to sunbelt countries.
This is according to Matthew Coulson, Intern, EES Africa (Pty) Ltd. EES Africa is a South African-based, ISO 9001:2008 certified company providing management, engineering and auditing services to a range of industries throughout Africa. It specialises in the integration of multiple system infrastructure including ICT, data centres, audio visual, life safety, security and building automation systems.
Challenges inherent in deploying Enterprise Wi-Fi (29/06/2015)
To achieve optimum productivity, it is today imperative for companies to be equipped with high performance enterprise Wi-Fi. However, with all the advancements in deploying a Wi-Fi network in an enterprise environment, IT professionals still find it challenging at times to implement a solution which will cater for and support a wider range of business applications.
“With the ever growing demand and evolution of Wi-Fi, it can be expected that Wi-Fi nodes, Wi-Fi calling, social media focused free Wi-Fi and a much wider deployment of public Wi-Fi hotspots will become more and more of a reality,” says Kim Greyling, Business Analyst for EES Africa (Pty) Ltd.
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.
