Cape school gets solar-powered lab

first_img13 August 2008The Bernadino Heights High School outside Cape Town has benefited from a government initiative that seeks to balance education with environmental responsibility, which has seen the school get a computer laboratory that is totally solar powered.The Western Cape education department’s Khanya project, which is tasked with installing and supporting technology to enhance teaching and learning in the province’s schools, funded and built the laboratory in the town of Kraaifontein, on the northeast outskirts of Cape Town.The increasingly important role of technology in society, the growing number of schools at which Khanya has installed computer laboratories, and energy constraints convinced the project that they had to look at alternate energy sources.“It would be irresponsible of Khanya not to consider the impact on the environment,” said Kyanha programme manager Kobus van Wyk in a statement by the Western Cape education department last week.“In solving an education problem, the project is in danger of creating an environmental one.”In addition, relying on solar power means such laboratories can be deployed in rural areas without worrying about needing an electrical connection.Members of the Khanyi project began working on a solar power pilot project about a year ago and Bernadino Heights was selected as the recipient of the first solar-powered computer laboratory.“An exceptionally well managed school that serves a poor community, Bernadino Heights is a school where Khanya would receive positive co-operation,” the statement read.Reduced power usageAccording to the solar technology providers, Energy Efficient Options, the project consists of 60 solar panels, capable of producing 4 500 watts per hour, with a three-phase, nine kilowatt inverter capacity. Security was also a concern, and the solar panels had to be placed out of direct view of the road and all cables had to be buried to prevent vandalism or theft.The energy is used to run the computer laboratory, which has 30 personal computers and a printer, and the administration room, which has eight personal computers, a fax machine, a photocopier and a printer.The equipment being used in the laboratory was also upgraded to reduce power usage to nearly a third of what is used by a traditional Khanya computer laboratory.Improving affordabilityKhanya project’s implementation manger Andre Pietersen said that while no real difficulties were experienced during the pilot project, the greatest challenge remained to reduce costs.However, he added that the focus of the current pilot project was not on finding a cheap solution, but rather to determine whether solar energy could be used to power a Khanya computer laboratory.“The next phase of Khanya will be to concentrate on a more affordable model,” he said, adding that the new laboratory would be a stepping stone in the rollout of energy saving, environmentally friendly technology installations.SAinfo reporter Would you like to use this article in your publicationor on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

Moody’s ratings upgrade for Eskom

first_img“Secondly, the SA government has demonstrated its strong financial support by approving an increase in its guarantee limit from R176-billion to R350-billion and proposing an equity injection of R20-billion, which is still subject to [the] government’s internal approvals.” Ratings agency Moody’s has lifted the outlook on Eskom’s senior unsecured bonds from negative to stable, citing the power utility’s continued shift towards cost-reflective tariffs and the strong support it enjoys from its shareholder, the South African government. SAinfo reporterWould you like to use this article in your publication or on your website? See: Using SAinfo material “The timing of the review by Moody’s is fitting given the progress made towards resolving the concerns raised by all rating agencies,” Eskom Finance Director Paul O’Flaherty said in a statement this month. 23 December 2010 Eskom said the rating amendment would help it meet its commitment to providing South Africa with much-needed generation capacity, while maintaining the financial sustainability of the company.

GDP growth slows, jobless numbers up

first_img27 May 2015Gross domestic product (GDP) slowed to 1.3% in the first quarter of 2015, Statistics South Africa (Stats SA) said yesterday.“The seasonally adjusted real GDP at market prices for the first quarter of 2015 increased by an annualised rate of 1.3%,” said statistician-general Pali Lehohla. This was down from a 4.1% increase in the fourth quarter of 2014.The main contributors to the increase in economic activity were the mining and quarrying industry (which contributed 0.8% based on growth of 10.2%), and finance, real estate and business services (which contributed 0.7% based on growth of 3.8%).According to Stats SA, the positive growth in mining and quarrying was due to higher production in the mining of coal and mining of “other” metal ores including platinum, while the growth in finance, real estate and business services was due to increased activities in banking from financial intermediation services and equity, bond and other financial markets in auxiliary activities.The wholesale, retail and motor trade, catering and accommodation industry also contributed to economic activity at 0.2% based on growth of 1.2%. This growth was due to an increase in turnover in the wholesale and retail trade divisions.However, negative contributions were recorded by the agriculture, forestry and fishing industry (-0.4%) and the manufacturing industry (-0.3%). Economic activity in the latter reflected negative growth of 2.4% as a result of lower production in petroleum, chemical products, rubber and plastic products, and wood and wood products, among other divisions.Market expectationsThe unadjusted real GDP at market prices increased by 2.1% during the first quarter of 2015 (year-on-year). Nominal GDP was estimated at R965-billion for the quarter, R14-billion less than the fourth quarter last year.Economic growth slowed more than anticipated, with the markets expecting growth on average of 1.6%.“When compared with the same quarter a year ago, the economy fared better (expanding by 2.1% from the fourth quarter’s 1.3%), but this mainly reflects the impact of last year’s strike-inflicted base,” said Nedbank economists.According to Nedbank economists, the economy is still expected to grow by a subdued 2.2% in 2015 as a whole. This is helped by moderately firmer retail activity and some recovery in mining off last year’s low base.However, the upside will be contained by load shedding, lower international commodity prices and subdued global demand, they said.“Today’s GDP figures are consistent with the Reserve Bank’s general assessment of the economy, reflecting little underlying momentum, with considerable downside risks emanating from the country’s electricity woes, other structural constraints and policy uncertainties.”Jobless numbersStats SA also released employment data yesterday, saying South Africa’s unemployment rate increased to 26.4% in the first quarter of 2015.This was up from the 24.3% in the last quarter of 2014, this as the data had been revised to take account of the changes to the structure of the population revealed in the 2011 census. The last time this was done was in 2007 using the 2001 census.“The results for quarter one show that the working age population was 35.8 million – 15.5 million employed, 5.5 million unemployed and 14.8 million not economically active. Thus resulting in an unemployment rate of 26.4%,” said Lehohla, speaking at a media briefing on the release of the first quarter results of 2015 of the Quarterly Labour Force Survey.In its survey that polls households, Stats SA said that the formal sector accounted for the largest share of employment at 69.8% while agriculture accounted for the lowest share. Around 16% of the not economically active population was accounted for by the discouraged, while more than 80% was due to other reasons, such as being a student or a home maker.Not economically active“The results for quarter one of 2015 reflect a decrease in the not economically active population in favour of the economically active population,” noted the report.The number of employed people increased by 140 000 in the first quarter with large quarterly gains observed in the finance (156 000), agriculture (150 000) and private households industries (69 000). Job losses were recorded in the trade, transport, and community and social services industries (at 201 000, 53 000 and 51 000 respectively).The expanded unemployment rate, which includes people who have stopped looking for work, increased by 1.5% to 36.1%. The share of the employed population with tertiary education was highest among the white (46.3%) and Indian/Asian (34.2%) population groups. Over half of employed black Africans and the coloured population did not complete their matric education.Nedbank economists said that labour market conditions were unlikely to improve significantly in the months ahead.Source: SAnews.govlast_img read more
