    South Africa’s Power System Is Ready For New Energy

    Engineering study dispels myths on limits to renewables in SA; Report confirms the power system will be sufficiently flexible to handle very large amounts of variable wind and solar PV generation.

    Chris Yelland, 17 September 2017 (MoneyWeb)

    “…Myths and propaganda peddled by discredited utility executive on the limits and costs of accommodating significant levels of variable renewable energy capacity in the South African power grid [are dispelled by the hard facts reported in Assessing the impact of increasing shares of variable generation on system operations in South Africa.] The study and associated report was prepared for the South African Department of Energy (DoE) and Eskom…commissioned and funded by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) under the DoE’s South African – German Energy Programme (SAGEN)…[and] conducted by international engineering consultants…[To refute claims by fired former Eskom CEO Brian Molefe and suspended Eskom acting CEO Matshela Koko, it] investigates the increased flexibility [and cost] requirements of the South African power system resulting from increased levels of renewable generation in the time-frame up to 2030…The study confirms that the South African power system will be sufficiently flexible to handle very large amounts of variable wind and solar PV generation, especially when considering the addition of combined cycle gas turbines (CCGTs) and open cycle gas turbines (OCGTs)…[with feasible modernizations] at moderate additional costs…” click here for more
