Opinion: Sasolburg power station turnaround offers hope for keeping lights on
In this opinion article, Sasol senior VP for the Sasolburg & Ekandustria operations Rightwell Laxa, and Sebenzana MD Andrew Carr, argue that old, coal-fired power stations similar to those used by Sasol and Eskom could achieve a much-needed maintenance turnaround by blending dwindling engineering expertise with a high-tech, asset management platform. The authors outline how boiler-tube failures at the Sasolburg power stations were reduced by more than 66% and how the old power stations are now achieving world-class performance levels.
Solar PV rooftops to help meet energy targets
Viet Nam has favourable conditions to develop solar energy across the country, but according to experts, it needs an economical, technically feasible net-metering scheme to promote solar PV rooftops in the country.
Net-metering is a system in which solar panels or other renewable energy generators are connected to a public-utility power grid and surplus power is transferred onto the grid, allowing customers to offset the cost of power drawn from the utility.
It also allows consumers who generate some or all of their own electricity to use that electricity anytime, instead of when it is generated.
