SAESA and Enlit Africa have announced a partnership to launch Africa’s first platform for Integrated Storage and Alternative Power Solutions that will look at both renewable and energy storage solutions in a holistic manner, offering real world solutions
This will be showcased at the next live, in-person Enlit Africa conference and exhibition in Cape Town from 7-9 June 2022.
“The developments in energy storage will make a massive difference to the efforts to achieve net zero in carbon emissions over the next period,” said Jo Dean, board member and spokesperson for the South African Energy Storage Association (SAESA). “We represent the interests of cutting-edge technology companies, which will collectively change the landscape of renewable energy and distributed generation in South Africa.”
The platform showcasing Integrated Storage and Alternative Power Solutions will take a technology-agnostic approach for real-world solutions aimed at the private sector, municipalities and energy-intensive power users looking for practical, implementable, and financially viable alternatives.
In addition, there is a need to set up new regulations and standards to build confidence in this sector and reduce project risk. The platform will host global experts within the private sector, government, and institutional organisations to unpack the practical standards and regulatory suggestions for the industry to adopt.
In the run-up to the live Enlit Africa event in Cape Town in June next year, regular technical and educational content will be hosted on their digital platform Enlit Africa-Connect and ESI-Africa, creating a year-round engagement platform for this sector.
