South Africa’s Energy Minister Elizabeth Dipuo Peters will welcome delegates at the official networking reception at the event which will boast over 600 visitors from across the globe. Clean Power Africa incorporates the fifth edition of the hugely successful Hydropower Africa 2012 conference and exhibition and the second year of Solar Energy Africa.

New opportunities
Says the Clean Power Africa conference director Nicolaas Loretz: “we have found that most utilities, municipalities and governments need more insight into retrofitting hydropower to their current dams. Also new opportunities have arisen in the mining industry where excessive water or flooding is now used to provide onsite power for mines and the Clean Power Africa programme will elaborate on this.”

He continues: “a very exciting trend in the hydropower sector is that conduit hydropower and generating hydropower energy from current water distribution systems are getting more and more traction and most utilities are now looking to capitalise on this.”

Solar updates
According to Loretz, South Africa’s Renewable Energy IPP Procurement Programme will be discussed and Energy Minister Dipuo Peters, will elaborate on the way forward. “The programme will also provide up-to-date information on major projects and future prospects for project development, including mini, small and large hydro as well as PV (Photovoltaics) and CSP (Concentrated Solar Thermal Power). More coal-fired power plants are now incorporating CSP and the programme will include updates on this”, says Loretz.
