The country has been experiencing power outages for several years now which brings alternative energy supply to the forefront.
Egoli Gas is helping Industry to meet growing energy demand and limit CO2 emissions with cleaner-burning piped natural gas as the cleanest-burning hydrocarbon.
Converting traditional energy requirements to piped natural gas, has been a successful option for many businesses.
Egoli Gas piped natural gas offer a breach to the energy growth barrier with a unique delivery to market that eliminates logistical difficulties, extra storage and delivery costs. These benefits also provide a series of features portraying enhanced focus on safety, pipeline integrity and operations excellence.
Natural gas is the cleanest-burning hydrocarbon, producing around half the carbon dioxide (CO2) and just one tenth of the air pollutants of coal when burnt to generate electricity. Ultimately with piped natural gas, including initial CAPEX, business cases to companies still provides a positive and similarly increasing the bottom line with a more cost effective alternative. Unlike other fuel sources, Piped Natural Gas combusts up to 95%.
Natural gas is versatile.
Embedded Power generation has become a priority and vital factor to sustainability for businesses in South Africa. Consideration to piped natural gas allows different types of solutions to be explored, such as managing energy resource supply, the viability and efficiency utilizing the source to maximum benefit.
A market shift across the board in CHP (Combined Heat and Power) where gas combustion is used for electricity generation, heat from exhaust heat exchanger used for space heating as well as extracted heat processed through absorption chilling for cooling, giving you CCHP (Combined Cooling, Heat and Power). Additional benefits that could be explored are these flu gas’s, which can be utilised and Co² captured for cleaning and an extra revenue stream or internal applications. A natural gas-fired power generation facility takes much less time to start and stop compared to a coal-fired plant. Natural gas is also be used as a lower-carbon fuel for cars, trucks and busses currently in South Africa.
Piped natural gas powers, heats and cools industries, homes and businesses, and it can be used in a hybrid system incorporating renewable energy sources like wind and solar.
Egoli Gas have significant CAPEX invested into the Northern parts of Johannesburg, identified as growth regions. Government licensed or granted approval on embedded power generation of up to 10MW without ministerial approval. This assists Egoli Gas in supplying a more diversified market with energy solutions, especially required during the unstable financial climate after the arrival of the pandemic.
Egoli Gas parent company Reatile Group’s motto is “We are growing”, our growing popularity backs this statement.
