Energy Efficiency & Renewables

Rainbow Technologies is involved in a number of initiatives in Southern Africa to design small renewable energy generation and cogeneration projects.
 
Rainbow Technologies is an Eskom registered ESCO (Energy Services Company) and hence is able to claim for the DSM credits and benefits attributable to projects on behalf of the client.
We are also registered with the SAIEE (SA Institute of Electrical Engineers) and the SAEE (SA Association of Energy Efficiency) and hence well placed and up to date with the latest International energy generation and energy efficiency technologies.
 
From time to time Rainbow hosts seminars with informed speakers to ensure that our clients are up to date with the latest information and regulations in the ever changing SA ESI. The most recent of which was a seminar at the University of KZN to discuss and debate the latest PCP rules.
 
The Government is due to implement new SANS building standards that will enforce energy efficiency in buildings by 2012. Rainbow is already implementing projects that are aligned with these standards. After the implementation of energy efficiency initiatives have been exhausted in Industry, we believe that the energy environment will change towards the use of co-generation and small scale renewable plants especially in the foreseeable power climate where developments are being delayed due to a lack of Eskom power and the pending restrictions from the Eskom PCP (10% Power Conservation Program).
 
Rainbow is able to assist clients with a range of services – from plant audit through to application of benefits from the relevant authorities at the end of a project. This includes: investigation, audit, measure, design, implement, post operation assessment. Rainbow is fortunate to have Engineers and Technologists with a wide range of Industry, building and technology experience and is able to assist clients with, but not be limited to, the following (in no specific order) technologies:
 
• Heat pumps or thermal solar water heating systems for change rooms (ablutions), chalets and buildings.
• High efficiency motors.
• Energy efficient lights incl. LED lighting and their control systems to maximize natural lighting.
• Building automation systems to control usage through measurement and reporting.
• High Efficiency HVAC systems and controls.
• Photovoltaic solar systems for small power generation needs.
• Wind generator systems.
• Maximum Demand and load profile control.
 
Rainbow is advising clients and signing Energy Efficiiency Certificates (EEC's) in accordance with the DME Power Conservation Program (PCP).
We have internationally accredited Energy Efficiency personnel to advise in these processes.
We are promoting the latest energy efficiency intiatives and technologies for our clients.
