The use of robots in the maintenance of overhead lines

Strategic assets, such as electricity transmission grids, must be operated in a safe, predictable and reliable way. To do so, best practices in the operation and maintenance of transmission networks must evolve to respond to the changing context of pressured grid operators: operation and maintenance standards, laws and regulations, increasing loads, commercial exchanges, etc. This […]

Case study: Grid parity analysis of a PV-BESS hybrid

A proprietary technical and economic model was used to determine the optimal sizing of a grid-connected PV-BESS (solar PV and battery energy storage system) combination for a mine under development and located in the Northern Cape. This article presents the analysis of grid parity dynamics based on the levelised cost of electricity (LCOE) concept to […]
