Die Fachmesse EnLit Africa

German Energy Solutions on show in South Africa
Six SMEs from Germany presented their renewable energy wares at Enlit Africa in Cape Town between 7 – 9 June. The first energy trade show was held in person for the first time since 2019 due to the pandemic. South Africa represents a huge opportunity for clean tech providers as its government recently laid out plans to shift to a sustainable, low-carbon economy. In fact, the Department of Mineral Resources and Energy has put out a tender for 2,600 MW of renewable capacity through its REIPPP programme. The country leads Sub-Saharan Africa in the field of hydrogen (H2) – not only does it have abundant natural potential for renewables, but the infrastructure to turn H2 into low-carbon fuels for transportation. Also significant is the easing of regulation around electricity self-supply: businesses can now install up to 100 MW without a permit. The exhibitors at the German Energy Solutions Initiative's stand ranged from providers of solar and small hydropower technology through to training for power plant operators.

German Training Weeks to focus on solar
Over the next few weeks and months, dozens of small businesses in Africa and Cambodia will be inducted in the practical application of solar photovoltaic (PV) technology for cost-effective energy. The objective of German Training Weeks – part of German Energy Solutions’ Project Development Programme – is to transfer knowledge of new energy technologies to developing regions, from technical know-how through to the commercial and legal aspects of implementation. Experts from German PV companies will train up participants over the four-day course in the latest cutting-edge tech to provide affordable and sustainable solar power for industrial processes. The solar training weeks will take place in Madagascar and Cambodia in June and July, followed by Botswana, Zambia and The Ivory Coast in September 2022.

PDP: German solar solutions in sunny Jordan
Rooftop solar project for Jordan River Pharmaceutical Industries LLC
Three Jordanian manufacturing businesses are benefitting from affordable, renewable power thanks to the Project Development Programme (PDP). Jordan River Pharmaceuticals had a 240 kWp photovoltaic (PV) system fitted on its rooftop that now covers 45 percent of its electricity needs and offsets 233,000 kilogram of carbon emissions per year. Meanwhile, Aqaba Vegetable Oils covered 1,000 squaremeters of its roof with a PV array that accounts for 70 percent of the food processing company’s energy needs.

How a solar thermal pilot in Portugal can help German industry decarbonise
Opens in a new window
A joint venture between the German Aerospace Centre (DLR) and the Portuguese University of Évora has delivered one of the first pilot plants in Europe to use molten salt instead of thermal oil for heat transfer. Salt has long been used as a storage medium in such plants - just not as a heat transfer medium. Now, solar radiation is collected in large parabolic troughs and channelled into pipes containing liquified salt where it is maintained at high temperatures for overnight storage. The solution is ideal for storing industrial process heat.
