Project

Improving Renewables Penetration Through Plug and Play Microgrids (RePower)

For Africa to meet its climate goals, the proportion of renewables in the current energy mix needs to be improved strongly. This is to be realized through robust and effective technologies, sustainable business models, a skilled technical workforce and an enabling regulatory environment. RePower will contribute to these efforts by demonstrating and validating a modular and scalable plug and play (PnP) microgrid system based on photovoltaics (PV) and biomass combined heat and power (BCHP) augmented with a battery energy storage system (BESS) and an intelligent energy management system (EMS). Furthermore,  the project will provide tools, processes and a roadmap to replicate the installation of this modular plug-and-play microgrid system at any other location.
