Tenesol to highlight photovoltaic solar energy?s potential in Africa

Tenesol will exhibit at the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP17/CMP17) 2011 in Durban, South Africa. The company, which is one of the largest PV manufacturers in Africa, will use the event to highlight the untapped potential of the grid-connected solar market in Africa.

The company will showcase its extensive work in the African solar industry, which began in 1983. Since then Tenesol?s African operations have expanded to include subsidiaries all over Africa, an 85 MWp (around 400,000 panels) manufacturing plant in Cape Town and extensive work in grid-connected and remote off-grid projects.

Most African countries have 325 days of sunlight a year, making it an essential free energy source for the continent. While South Africa is currently the largest grid connected market in Africa, in March 2011, the Department of Energy published the latest iteration of the Integrated Resource Plan (IRP), which proposes that around 300 MW of large-scale PV plants should be installed in South Africa each year.

Tenesol?s work incorporates the entire project cycle from design and manufacture to installation, operatioin and maintenance. The company?s experience includes extensive work delivering grid-connected systems and ground-mounted systems as an EPC contractor. Its work in off-grid applications include delivering bespoke PV systems for rural electrification, solar water pumping, the telecoms industry and oil & gas sector. The company is well positioned to service the growing needs of the African solar market.

Tenesol?s stand will be located at stand 101 A. Staff from the company?s African business units will be on hand to welcome visitors and discuss the full range of its capabilities.
