ICT can reduce SA’s energy consumption (31/10/2013)
The South African energy crisis and the need to manage supply and demand has motivated State-owned power utility, Eskom, to establish and implement aggressive goals and targets to support consumers in the drive towards reduced energy consumption.
In addition to its Integrated Demand Management (IDM) programme, which makes funds available to consumers who support reduced energy demand or consumption, Eskom has successfully rolled out phases one and two of a residential mass rollout programme encouraging households to install energy efficient fittings and devices. To date approximately 965 000 households have been assisted, and the third phase is to follow shortly.
Industry has now suggested to Eskom that the residential program be followed by a commercial mass rollout programme. The details of this have yet to be stipulated, but industry players believe that implementation of newer technologies, equipment and processes will go a long way towards achieving energy savings.
