South Africa is currently transitioning its energy production to include domestically generated renewable energy. As the amount of renewable energy increases, methods and technologies need to be implemented to make the grid adaptable to variations in the energy supply.

The current power generation is largely based on coal, gas and nuclear power. Sweco’s experts will advise Eskom, the South African public power utility, on large scale integrations of renewable energy and how it will affect the national power grid. The project is a key initiative to meet established climate targets. The project is funded by a development program run by DANIDA, the Danish state board for development cooperation. Eskom operates most of the country’s power system, generates 95 per cent of its electricity, and 45 per cent of the electricity on the African continent. The project will be completed in June 2017.
