ARRAKIS April 22, 2015 1 Windpower in Africa A (mis)match between demand and supply?" Dr. Gerard J.W. van Bussel, Willem Lysen and ir. Jan de Jongh
ARRAKIS April 22, 20152 Content Overview of wind developments world wide Situation in North and South Africa. UN Sustainable Development Implementation Plan Demand of Africa, which technology suits best? Willem Lysen (Virgiel) + Jan de Jongh (Arrakis) Discussion
ARRAKIS Growth to 80 000 MW in Europe in 2010 (worldwide to 120.000 MW) 2005 Medio 2006 65.000 (W) 44.000 (E) Source EWEA 250 (Africa)
ARRAKIS April 22, 20154 Installed new wind power capacity Source: Ewea and GWEC:www.ewea.org Large scale electricity generation (in 2004)
ARRAKIS Deployment of wind power in Africa Large scale electricity generation
ARRAKIS April 22, 20156 Example of large scale wind farm in Egypt Parallel development in North Africa. (CDM project)
ARRAKIS Africa (2007 update): Sub-Saharan Africa is not on track to achieve any of the Goals. 7. Ensure environmental sustainability Integrate the principles of sustainable development into country policies and programmes. Reduce by half the proportion of people without sustainable access to safe drinking water and basic sanitation.
ARRAKIS April 22, 20158 World Summit on Sustainable Development Plan of implementation (Johannesburg 2002): Currently between 2 and 3 Billion people without access to reliable affordable and clean energy Half this number by the year 2015 HRM prince Willem Alexander During his official visit to India Currently 1.2 Billion people without access to clean water
ARRAKIS Access to clean water is the critical point for the poorest Little R&D efforts to implement water pumping windmills Most R&D efforts in high tech area (45 Fte at TU Delft in wind energy) Development needs support using AT: AT and TU Delft ?? Advanced Technology Appropriate Technology Affordable Technology
ARRAKIS Example: South Africa Currently 8 GWh electrical energy produced from wind But 26 GWh generated for water pumping purposes with 23.000 wind pumps (Climax pump Soutern Cross) Distribution of water pumping windmills in South Africa
ARRAKIS April 22, 201511 Example: Mozambique high tech pumping system A three phase autonomous grid with battery storage and electric pumps
ARRAKIS 33 th Lustrum gift from students association Virgiel, Delft April 22, 201512 A contribution to sustainable development in Mozambique, Africa
ARRAKIS Investing in a sustainable future for Africa ARRAKIS “Clean energy for future needs” April 22, 201513 stimulation sustainable development affordable technologies o renewable energy o safe water supply countries ranked at low end of HDI improving health generate income
ARRAKIS Bilibiza, Cabo Delgado Mozambique April 22, 201514 ADPP’s EPF School
ARRAKIS The wind rope pump July 2007 April 22, 201515 Built in parts in Chimoio Assembled in Bilibiza Costs < 10% of Climax windpump (S. Africa)
ARRAKIS The wind rope pump principle April 22, 201516
ARRAKIS Live contact with Jan de Jongh, head of ARRAKIS April 22, 201518 Mozambique
ARRAKIS April 22, 201519 Thank you for your attention.
ARRAKIS Discussion Is the current profile of TU Delft on sustainability not too much focussed on high tech application? Should TU Delft extend its profile with affordable technology activities? (“contextuality”) If yes, how to enhance sustainable development with affordable technology at TU Delft? (in both research and education)
