The Standard Product model comprises pre-approved rebates for energy savings achieved through specified technologies. Through this programme, customers are able to replace most commonly-used inefficient technologies with their energy efficient equivalents. The Standard Product offer was developed to create capacity to implement small and medium-sized projects. Standard Products, referred to as an application specific standard product (ASSP), are available as off-the-shelf components. Such products, approved by Eskom, are replacements for less energy efficient technologies. A product can be a component, sub assembly or a complete “machine”. Technologies include lighting equipment (CFLs instead of incandescent bulbs) control systems (building/process management, occupancy sensors, daylight sensors etc), and programmable process control systems. Energy saving projects may be undertaken by Energy Services Companies (ESCOs) or customers. Issue: Manual business processes and resource intensive processes for relative low savings.

GE’s WattStation™ is an easy-to-use electric vehicle (EV) charger designed to help accelerate the adoption of plug-in electric vehicles (PEV) by significantly decreasing time needed for vehicle charging. Its smart grid-enabled technology could also help utility companies manage the impact of EVs on the local and regional grids. On average the WattStation™ decreases EV charging time from 12-18 hours to as little as 4-8 hours compared to standard charging, assuming a 24 kWh battery and a full-cycle charge. In addition, the design will enable integration into the electrical distribution system, offering an end-to-end integrated EV infrastructure solution of electrical distribution products.
Soon, Nissan’s Leaf electric car won’t just draw power from its owners’ homes – it will help to power those buildings, the car maker says. Nissan has unveiled a system which enables the Leaf’s lithium-ion batteries to supply electricity to households, using a connector linked to the car’s quick charging port. This allows the Leaf to be used as an electricity storage device for houses in preparation for power outages – a particular concern in Japan, where power supplies have continued to suffer interruptions following the Fukushima nuclear crisis earlier this year. The lithium-ion batteries can store up to 24kWh of electricity, sufficient to power an average Japanese household for about two days. The system can not only supply electricity from the vehicle but also charge it to the vehicle, Nissan says. The new system is installed at a model house in front of the Nissan global headquarters, and the company says it aims to commercialize the system during this fiscal year. The connector complies with the CHAdeMO Association’s global protocol for quick chargers.
http://www.sustainablelifemedia.com/news_and_views/articles August 12, 2011—Ford and solar panel maker SunPower Corp. have teamed up to offer a residential solar system designed to offset the electricity used to charge Ford’s new Focus Electric vehicle, which debuts later this year. Ford is the first automaker to market a solar system with its electric vehicles (EVs), and the option responds to one of the major environmental criticisms of EVs: that they will increase demand for electricity produced by polluting, fossil-fuel power plants. Under the "Drive Green for Life" program, Ford EV customers can buy a 2.5-kilowatt rooftop solar system for under $10,000. That price includes federal rebates, but additional state and local rebates could lower the price to as little as $4,600. The system will generate an average of 3000 kilowatt-hours of electricity a year, enough to charge a vehicle driven about 1,000 miles a month. The companies are pitching it as a way to reduce the total cost of ownership. The solar offering will be expanded to support all of Ford’s upcoming electric and plug-in hybrid vehicles. In January, Ford announced an agreement with consumer electronics retailer Best Buy to offer a 240-volt home charging station for electric vehicle owners.
The smart city is a place that marries humans, technology and ecology – note that this is a definition created by companies selling technology, but we’ll work with that for now.
What makes it smart is the participatory network of people, utilities and things (like vehicles and appliances). No doubt that sustainable energy forms an important part of this solution, but it is not the whole solution by far.
Electric vehicles are the start of smart. Connect them to information systems and make them public or shareable resources and they are very smart.

IntroductionSouth Africa’s power system is constrained and will be for next few yearsEskom, together with stakeholders, have kept the lights on since 2008Most power stations are in their mid-life and require increased maintenanceStrategy of shifting maintenance outages can no longer be sustained.Significant maintenance is required to address backlogsInitiatives are in place to keep the lights on 4
The Threats and Opportunities created by ElectricVehicles
Impact of Electric VehiclesThreats Opportunities• EV’s will have a substantial • EV’s will result in additional impact on the demand for electricity usage and sales electricity • EV’s will provide electricity• Eskom does not have sufficient storage capacity which could generating capacity to meet the be a valuable resource existing demand for electricity • EV’s could bring investments• EV charging infrastructure will into the electricity sector put substantial additional load on already overloaded • Developments in EV’s could networks result in new technologies ie: batteries2011/11/09 7
