EC APRIL 2018 low res coverThe signing of the R56 billion contract with renewable power producers is a good story in the ‘renewed’ South Africa … ‘renewed’ relating to the ministerial changes that have taken place in government. The group of companies (27 independent renewable energy power producers) set to sign the contracts will generate wind power, biomass and solar energy to increase the share of clean electricity the country produces.

Electricity and Control March 2018

The tide has turned!

A week or two of ‘dominoes’ … that’s what it has been. Dominoes, falling … one by one – from the President of South Africa to the corrupters at the core of the downfall of Eskom and other state-owned enterprises. The tide has turned and yes, it had to come sometime. What is concerning is that the older generation (largely) has had to return to right the wrongs of the wrong-doers who fall in the much younger category. Just saying.

ElectricityandControl February 2018Best … we remember!

When the daily (or hourly) news focuses on cheating executives, fraud, corruption and scandal of the humongous kind, best we remember that occurring simultaneously are some wonderful acts of honesty and courage … one of the most recent being the rescue of 955 miners from Sibanye Gold Mine.

Electricity and Control January 2018 OFCFiddling – while Eskom burns

Greetings to everyone from the Electricity+Control team and may it be a wonderful 2018 – all round!

No one wants to start the year on a ‘down’ … but how can the downfall of a once respected entity – Eskom – be ignored?

Electricity and Control December 2017This year has reminded me of Twitter … the frantic scrolling down the page, getting to the bottom – going back up – only to scroll down, back up and down, again and again! Bits and bytes of information about everything and about nothing zooming through my head … going everywhere and going nowhere! Depending on your age, you might believe (as I do) that the 21st Century world is science fiction come true. It is a changed world; another world – and fascinating, if you are able to make sense of it.
