REEEP investments in mini-hydro opportunities

REEEP venture Entura held a workshop in South Africa on March 5 to demonstrate to utilities how they can use mini hydro to increase efficiency and reduce operating costs. While Entura focused on the city of Durban and worked hand in hand with local eThekwini Water and Sanitation, the potential for scale and replication go far beyond the city limits. 

Building power and water infrastructure capability in South Africa

Specialist power and water consulting firm Entura has identified opportunities for the South African city of Durban to increase its use of renewable energy, while at the same time driving down water infrastructure operating costs. Entura received a grant from the Renewable Energy and Energy Efficiency Partnership (REEEP), an international non-profit organisation, to identify opportunities to install mini-hydro (100kW to 1MW) on existing water supply infrastructure. The opportunities identified would enable generation of energy from renewable sources without the need for large and costly new infrastructure.
