The South African co-generation market is currently in its early development phase. However, current electricity problems, the growing prominence of more efficient technologies and the rising prices of fossil fuels will help create a highly lucrative industry for co-generation in South Africa.

New analysis from growth consulting company Frost & Sullivan (energy.frost.com), The South African Co-generation Market, estimates that this market will be worth $30.4 million by 2012. The market will experience significant growth of approximately 30 to 50 per cent per annum over the next five to ten years.

"Co-generation has the ability to achieve up to 90 per cent efficiency, while current generation in South Africa has less than 40 per cent efficiency," notes Frost & Sullivan Industry Manager Cornelis van der Waal. "With higher efficiencies, co-generation plants will be able to attain higher profit margins than regular sources of generation. This would offset the significant start-up and maintenance costs in the long-run."

Frost & Sullivan expects the cogeneration sector to experience a compounded average growth of 48 per cent for the next five years from 2007. The potential spike in energy demands linked to the 2010 World Cup will provide impetus to the industry. Furthermore, the market is set to expand significantly to meet Eskom's plans of increasing its total output energy level to 900 MW through co-generation by 2012.

Sizeable start-up costs are one of the main restraints hindering companies from establishing co-generation plants. For instance, a 3 MW turbine costs $1.37 million, while burners can cost between $8 million to $20 million.

"Despite the offer of financial assistance from Eskom and the government, the market is adopting a cautious approach," notes Van der Waal. "Joint ventures in the private sector could however help minimise start-up costs."
