A $1.4 million technical study supported by the partnership will also provide detailed analytics for the Kenyan power system and serve as a roadmap to help advance the energy storage market in Kenya. Implementation of energy storage technologies can increase the efficiency and stability of the national grid, allow for increased integration of renewable energy generation sources, and reduce reliance on expensive fossil fuel generation in Kenya.

 

"Our primary focus is on solar energy which has the potential to eliminate the power shortages that hold back socio-economic development across the continent,” said Paul W Webb, Xago Africa’s Managing Director. “Furthermore, energy storage will transform electricity transmission networks and rapidly accelerate the take‐up of renewables, and we are proud to be partnering Alevo which leads the field in battery technology and network analytics. This USTDA funded project builds on our valuable relationship with Power Africa and will lay the foundations for the Kenyan electricity system to become the most advanced in Africa."

 

“Solar plus energy storage will enable Kenya to increase the adoption of renewable energy as the storage will provide grid stability, help to manage solar intermittency, and provide dispatchability of clean reliable and sustainable power to the Kenyan people,” confirmed Dr Randell M Johnson, PE, Chief Analytics Officer, Alevo Analytics.

 

Julian Oteng, Xago Africa’s Director of Operations, said “We are also looking at expanding into other territories. Energy storage is coming and we aim to lead the way in North and Sub‐Saharan Africa with Alevo Battery Technology. This is the start of a long-term relationship which will help to bring clean power to the 600 million Africans who do not have access to electricity.”

 

“USTDA is pleased to facilitate new business partnerships between US and Kenyan companies that can spur long-term, sustainable economic growth,” said Sub-Saharan Africa Regional Director Lida Fitts. “The adoption of innovative and cost-effective US technology can help Kenya to meet its energy development goals.”

 

Xago Africa is currently developing a 40 MW solar power plant at a cost of around $75 million near Lake Victoria which will alleviate the chronic power shortages in Western Kenya. And together with construction partner, Solarcentury East Africa, Xago Africa will provide solar power systems to three schools in the area in addition to its ongoing support for the Mama Sarah Obama Foundation’s school building programme.

 

About Xago Africa

 

Xago Africa was established in 2014 to deliver vital public infrastructure projects financed by private sector funding with the aim of fostering economic growth and sustainable industrial development in Africa. Headquartered in Kenya, Xago Africa combines environmental engineering and project development capabilities with an extensive investor network to accelerate socio‐economic development for the people of Africa.

The new photocouplers are in a SO6L(LF4) package and can be mounted on land patterns of SDIP6(F type) products with a maximum height of 4.15mm. TheSO6L(LF4)’s 2.3mm (max) thin package offers users the advantage of directly replacing SDIP6(F type) products in height-critical applications that require lower package height, such as a back of PCBs.

 

To support replacement of widely used original land pattern of SDIP6(F type) package products, Toshiba will expand the wide leadform option line-up for other SO6L IC photocouplers.

 

The latest Gartner market report recognizes Toshiba as the leading manufacturer of optocouplers by sales in 2015 and 2016, with 23% of sale-based market share in CY2016. (Source: Gartner “Market Share: Semiconductor Devices and Applications Worldwide 2016” 30 March, 2016)

 

Toshiba will continue to deliver products that meet the needs of customers by promoting the development of a diverse portfolio of photocouplers and photorelays tailored to market trends.

Geopolymer Concrete Road using NTPC-DADRI Fly Ash by NETRA and CSIR

16th May, 2017

NTPC-NETRA and CSIR-Central Building Research Institute, Roorkee have developed high strength fly ash based geopolymer concrete for construction of road as per IRC specifications. A Geopolymer concrete road stretch of 50 m length and 3 m width with 40 MPa concrete strength has been laid successfully at CSIR-CBRI, Roorkee using NTPC Dadri fly ash, first of its kind in India. This Geopolymer road will not require water curing as required by cement concrete road and also paves the way for bulk fly ash utilization.

NTPC is fully aligned to the needs of adapting to emerging technologies and upgrading the technologies through research and development as a leading player in the World Energy Sector. The company is particularly sensitive to Research & Development and the paradigm shift which it can make. NETRA (NTPC Energy Technology Research Alliance) set up in 2009 is the outcome of this vision.

Climate change, waste management, carbon capture and Utilization, new & renewable energy, efficiency improvement and cost reduction are core areas of research. NETRA is also providing scientific support to NTPC and external utilities for improving availability, reliability and efficiency.
