THere There is no doubt that South Africa is currently facing Large-scale power challenge with load limitation A destructive reality that everything has to deal with except a few off-the-grid citizens. At the same time, it is becoming increasingly clear that countries need to significantly reduce their carbon emissions. According to the Global Carbon Atlas, South Africa has the twelfth largest greenhouse gas emission on the planet and the largest in Africa.

There is a strong and urgent need to accelerate renewable energy growth across the region to ensure adequate, affordable and reliable energy supplies for individuals, businesses and communities. Huawei is at the forefront of addressing these issues, as demonstrated at the July 8, 2021 Virtual Digital Power Event.

“In sub-Saharan Africa, more than 50% of the population does not yet have access to electricity,” he said. Huangso, CEO of South Africa Digital Energy Business. “Beyond that, thousands of hospitals and schools do not have a stable power supply. This can easily have disastrous consequences.”

South Africa is a major continental country when it comes to electricity generation, but Su points out that South Africa is currently unable to meet all electricity demand at all times.

“There is still a big gap to fill,” he added, “we must ensure that every household in Africa has enough electricity.”

To achieve this, Huawei is supporting renewable energy in combination with technology-driven data and intelligence.

As Su points out, renewable energy is much cheaper than fossil fuel-based options, and 1kWh solar power is cheaper than South African Rand. Therefore, it is clear that photovoltaics should, and probably will, play a major role in the world’s future power mix.

This is just one of the reasons Huawei has invested so much in smart solar (PV) solutions. By integrating AI and the cloud, Huawei has incorporated ICT expertise into PV to achieve optimal power generation. This enables the construction of efficient, safe and reliable solar power plants with smart O & M and grid support capabilities. Huawei has powered millions of people and industries around the world by improving the use of solar power. Huawei will innovate and enable renewable energy to empower individuals, homes and organizations.

“Huawei is already a common name in the ICT world,” says Su. “Every ICT needs power, and Huawei has always supplied it to some extent. Our efforts in the field of photovoltaics are an extension of that.”

“Over time, Huawei will deploy more and more scalable power plants,” he adds. “These power plants can be managed and maintained online, further reducing carbon dioxide emissions.”

“We are in a unique position to integrate power, power supply, and data management,” he concludes. “The journey from Bit to Watt is accelerating and we plan to lead it.”
