Enel Green Power discuss domination of South African onshore wind with international panel on sustainability
With almost 2,000MW of onshore wind South Africa is under the global spotlight as the industry's most exciting market.
With the latest announcement of Abengoa winning the first international bid in Chile with a tower project, the market trend towards this technology grows. CSP Today has published a complimentary report in which it outlines how tower technology is set to take the lead in Chile.
The California Public Utilities Commission's recent 1.3GW storage mandate to be fulfilled by the states 3 major utilities by 2020 has led to utilities across the nation putting procurement plans in place to avoid being caught out by a wholesale federal roll out of similar legislation.
The new Parabolic Trough Report 2014: Cost, Performance and Thermal Storage published by CSP Today gives new clarity to cost and performance of concentrated solar power parabolic trough technology.
Demand for electricity in South Africa has increased progressively over several years and the grid now faces supply and demand challenges. As a result, the Department of Energy has implemented a new Integrated Resource Plan to enhance generation capacity and promote energy efficiency. Photovoltaics (PV) and concentrated solar power (CSP) are set to be the main beneficiaries from the new plan having their initial allocation raised considerably.

Many 1.5 MW wind turbines use traditional open-loop water/glycol cooling systems. Regular water evaporation in the reservoir elevates the mixture's viscosity, prohibiting cooling of the IGBT and associated critical controls, causing the wind turbine to overheat unless serviced, which in turn means turbine downtime and high maintenance costs. Parker's KleenVent Coolant Evaporation Inhibitor (KV-CEI) is a simple add-on to the legacy cooling system, that eliminates water evaporation in the coolant solution and stops the ingress of airborne contaminants, by enclosing the cooling loop. The KVCEI also removes the need for continuous coolant monitoring during the warm season. Traditional maintenance calls to replenish or rebalance the fluids, take the wind turbine and transformer offline, resulting in significant downtime and revenue loss. Parker's cooling system solution optimizes wind turbine uptime and revenue, reduces maintenance costs and increases overall efficiencies.
