Strategic Research

The Energy Office has participated in a number of strategic planning exercises. These include:
 

Impact of localised Energy Efficiency (EE) and Renewable Energy (RE) on eThekwini’s finances over the next 10 years

Sustainable Energy Africa, with funding from the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), undertook a study to determine the impact of energy efficiency (EE) and renewable energy (RE) on the eThekwini municipality’s revenue over the next ten years. The findings from this study will inform the municipality, and the country as a whole, as to the losses they can expect, but also looks to provide contingency options which can be instituted over a period of time to protect the city’s revenue. The reports below are the final output of the project, showing the results achieved and options decided on.

Exploring the implications of different energy futures for eThekwini up to 2040

The Energy Scenarios for eThekwini project models and costs different energy development paths, using LEAP (Long-Range Energy Alternatives Planning) computer modelling software, to clarify a viable set of sustainable energy implementation objectives and to illustrate the carbon emissions implications of different energy futures for eThekwini. The project was undertaken by Sustainable Energy Africa (SEA), with funding support from Bread for the World.
The Long-Range Energy Alternatives Planning (LEAP) simulation tool was used to examine the implications of a number of possible future energy scenarios for eThekwini from the base year of 2010 up to 2040. Each scenario contained a combination of known viable energy efficiency interventions and electricity supply options.
The reports below are the final output of the project

Sustainable Energy Sector Assessment

The program consisted of an number of research pieces that reviewed the status of the sustainable energy sector in relation to the eThekwini Municipality. The following reports were an outcome of this process

Embedded Generation

The Energy Office initiated the Solar City Framework as a strategic program to promote embedded generation in the city. This Solar City Framework has resulted in a number of reports and interventions which are provided below:
