RENEWABLE ENERGY

With reductions in renewable energy prices and increases in national power tariffs, municipalities are facing pressure to integrate options such as embedded rooftop solar PV or wind generators into their networks. Landfill and sewage methane for electricity generation are also potentially viable renewable energy options.

Municipal Landfill Gas to Electricity Grid-Tied Project: Johannesburg (Johannesburg)

The Johannesburg landfill gas to energy project, initially conceived as a carbon reduction project, aims to mitigate greenhouse gases from five landfill sites in Johannesburg, through converting its landfill gas to electricity. The five sites have a combined potential capacity of 18.6 MW of electricity, and the project will be by far the largest municipal-driven renewable energy development in South Africa to date.

Potential for Integration of Distributed Solar PV Systems in Drakenstein Municipality

This report investigates the potential for municipalities to play a more pro-active role in rolling out distributed energy to address electricity constraints and generate income. This is done through an analysis of three municipal buildings to determine their suitability for rooftop PV followed by a pre-feasibility report (both technical and financial) in respect of the optimal building selected.
