TUeMI approached Eskom to consider electricity supply solutions ranging under 5 MW in order to engage the small to medium sized private sector. At this stage Eskom MTPPP programme is not currently structured to accommodate small generators i.e. less than 5MW. 

We are assisting small to medium sized companies in generating energy supply out of biomass and wind energy. We are motivating small to medium sized private sectors to participate on  the ESCOM’s challenge to supply up to 3 000 MW of near-term electricity supply starting from the beginning of 2009. 

                                

CARBO CONSULT & ENGINEERING (Pty) LTDdeveloped a gas-producer to consume solid Bio-Mass fuels to produce tar-free gas for electricity generation and / or heat applications. The fuel can be used for woodblocks, sourced from forestry- and sawmill waste, agricultural BIO-Mass, invader bush and alien trees and plants. At present, such gasifier plants are available from 75 KVA to 300 KVA.

We propopsed to ESCOM to challenge the small to medium sized private sectors to provide proposals to ESCOM to generate 10% of the near-term electricity supply starting from the beginning of 2009. To generate more than 10% (300 MW) of the near-term electricity supply of ESKOM we need app. 7,200 to/day of woody biomass which is possible and a challenge e.g. could address the unemployment situation in South Africa. Funding models are viable under the PNCP and the Base Load IPP Programme which is again a challenge for the small to medium sized private sectors.
