The SAIEE SmartGrid Conference was held on the 19th to the 21st September 2017 at the Eskom Conference Centre in Midrand, Gauteng.
In his opening address at the SAIEE’s SmartGrid Conference, the President of the South African Institute of Electrical Engineers (SAIEE), Jacob Machinjike, said that a smart grid infrastructure would provide unique opportunities for improved electricity services which would benefit people in Africa.
The conference, which was held at the Eskom Convention Centre in Midrand, heard that since the continent has wonderful wind and solar energy resources, these should be harnessed and fed into a smart grid which would efficiently control and regulate the inherently varying supply of electricity.
Machinjike said that the development of a smart grid, which will enable the integration of renewable energy sources into micro- and mini-grids, will also require new skills which industry will have to provide and which may require some changes at tertiary education level.
