SOUTHERN AFRICAN ENERGY EFFICIENCY CONVENTION CALL PAPER

"CHARACTERIZING GAS ENGINE TECHNOLOGY PERSPECTIVES FOR ENERGY SOLUTIONS"

The use of gas internal combustion engines for continuous power has only just moved beyond the infancy stage and the power supply landscape could be set for highly visible participation from the private sector. The technology adoption curve shows evidence that the Southern African market is experiencing several challenges toward reaching a growth phase given rising energy tariffs. Drivers, barriers and accelerators for the proliferation of this technology are described along with several requisite sector liaisons to bridge this chasm. The broad aim of this paper is to demonstrate that engine-based technology should be considered for addressing energy needs and various perspectives are created and described that could lead to rapid deployment of the technology towards fast-tracking power delivery and energy solutions in Southern Africa.

For the full presentation of this paper, catch Nalen Alwar Business Development Manager for Gas at the SAEEC at Emperor's Palace on the 13th November 2014 from 15:30pm to 16:00pm.
