The Future Is Bright For EADC

Located in Nairobi, Kenya, the East Africa Data Centre is East Africa’s largest and most connected data centre facility with a total of 2000 m² of secured space for data servers. The East Africa Data Centre, also known by its abbreviation EADC, provides data services for clients such as cloud services, data backup on servers, as well as storage and networking equipment. With Distributed Power Africa on their side, the EADC will be able to use the clean energy provided by the sun to reduce their operational cost as well as their carbon footprint.

South African Minister of Energy Radebe On Eskom Crisis

After another severe bout of load-shedding, South Africa’s Minister of Energy, Mr Jeff Radebe, discussed the problems faced by the country at the 8th Annual DLO Africa Power Roundtable. “Given the crisis at Eskom, I foresee a larger role for renewables,” Mr Radebe said, adding that where the government’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producers Procurement Programme (REIPPP) was considered to be too costly to implement, renewable energy is proven to become a cheaper and a viable option. And when all is said and done, the complete collapse of South Africa’s energy grid will cost the country far more than the implementation of the REIPPP.
