Renewable energy

Clean, sustainable, and abundant

As the global power mix continues to evolve, there is a growing need for renewable energy sources in South Africa, and across the globe. Solar power, with its ability to generate more energy, is poised to revolutionise the industry.

Exploring Renewable Energy

Renewable energy is created from naturally replenishing sources that are not depleted from their use.  These sources of energy can be replenished over time and include solar, wind, hydropower, geothermal, and biomass.

Due to the abundant sunlight, South Africa ranks among the top five countries in terms of solar photovoltaic (PV) energy, making it a popular choice for renewable energy across the continent. As a result, numerous utility-scale solar PV projects have been developed over the last decade to generate electricity.

Aurex’s extensive expertise and experience in constructing large scale solar PV plants that feed into the national power grid, or directly into customer installations, is highly valuable in this field.

Why renewable energy is the way forward

Solar plants yield numerous advantages for the environment, local communities, the country, and the global community. Producing electricity using clean, renewable energy sources diminishes reliance on fossil fuels. This leads to a decrease in hazardous emissions, lowering the country’s carbon footprint, and assisting global efforts to combat climate change. This can aid in achieving the net zero emissions objective.

In South Africa, the adoption of solar energy assists in mitigating electricity supply challenges, reducing the frequency of load shedding being experienced due to an aging infrastructure and dependence on coal-fired power plants which are planned to reach end-of-life in the foreseeable future.

The construction and operation of solar plants generate employment opportunities, promoting the growth of local economies, supporting the development of small businesses, and facilitating skills enhancement and community development.

Shivaan Sunderlall

Sasol Area Manager, SCC Hot side

I would just like to express my gratitude for the support I received in the current SCC shutdown. From the word go, we experienced high quality service. This included proper Covid compliance, up to date feedback, team on the floor that drove activities, stakeholder management, effective handovers and in a nut shell an incorporation of the Aurex team with my team. Our production foreman, technicians and process engineers were glad to work with a professional outfit like Aurex. I received positive feedback from my entire team.
