South Africa utility opens testing facility

South Africa’s main utility Eskom – one of the biggest power suppliers in Africa – has built a battery system testing and demonstration facility to help with its plan to provide 2GW of storage for energy produced from renewable sources eventually.

The testing will begin in July. Located at the utility’s Research and Innovation Centre in Rosherville, Johannesburg, the project will compare different energy storage technologies and solutions available today and find the best approach for the local electricity network and climate.
