It has been an eventful year for all of us. This last quarter especially so for Sustainable Power Generation.
Sustainable Power Generation was invited to represent South African at their pavilion at the Future Energy Nigeria Tradeshow as parts of the DTI’s mission to increase South African exports to the rest of Africa and beyond.
Nigeria has an estimated 7GW of generation capacity, but only 4 to 5GW of distribution capacity, and a population of close to 200 million people. Says Ames Martin, Head of Operations for SustainPower, “There are thousands of villages across the country with only candles and kerosene lamps for lighting; however, the country also boasts a very healthy and well-developed virtual gas network utilising LNG and CNG. These factors make it an excellent candidate for a decentralised power supply approach, using natural gas, or biogas in our gas-to-power solutions.” The huge demand for rural electrification in Nigeria will boost the development of solar powered mini-grids for which SustainSolar has developed modular, containerised solar solutions with battery storage.

3. SustainSolar delivers mini-grid solar container to East African development aid project
In early December, the first of its kind containerised solar system from Sustainable Power Generation’s SustainSolar division left Cape Town to bring power to an East African mini-grid project. Tobias Hobbach, MD of Sustainable Power Generation, “We are very excited that we were able to locally design and build a high quality containerised solar power solution with Li-Ion battery storage in record time to meet the customer’s requirements for an import electrification project. It is great to see that our innovative designs and manufacturing capabilities are recognised across the continent and that we get inquiries from around the world.”
With rural electrification initiatives all over the developing world and an increasing demand for mini-grids, SustainSolar is ideally positioned to play a significant role with their innovate clean energy products that are sustainable, durable, secure, and protect the investment no matter what the location.”
