Battery energy storage is the key to turning nationwide renewable power solutions into a reality. In South Africa, and around the world, countries are awaiting better, more reliable and more sustainable storage for solar power.
South Africa has been in need of a systemwide grid update for years. From load shedding to poor service delivery, South Africans have never been afforded the comfort of an affordable, reliable and environmentally-friendly means of electricity production, storage and distribution.
South Africa has always been celebrated for its incredible landscapes, wildlife, climate and natural wonders. However, there is more to our beautiful environment than meets the eye.
South Africa’s clean energy capacity is evolving at a rapid rate and the once-future transition to renewable power systems is well underway.
Advances in the technologies that generate, distribute and store renew-ably-sourced energy have allowed more sustainable methods of power generation to become more affordable and reliable.
If a business is trying to determine their success, they will most commonly look at their growth, costs and revenue to determine how profitable they are.
The benefits of using renewable energy resources – such as wind, sun and hydropower – are becoming more accessible and well-known, and using them is becoming more common. They can reduce our dependency on more harmful power sources like fossil fuels and reduce the amount of pollution and greenhouse gases we emit.
Battery power – and how we use it – has certainly changed a lot in the last decade. In 2010, we used batteries to power our phones and computers. Today, lithium-ion and other batteries are being used to store enough energy to power cars and even homes.
Regularly-generated electricity is not only expensive, it is harmful to our planet. Solar power offers an incredible alternative to grid power that is accessible, reliable and cost-effective; helping users save money and the environment.
Solar panels are a worthy investment that provide sustainable and cost-effective power generation that can supplement or replace grid power completely.
