Energy efficiency – Petrus Naude – OneWorld

  1. 1. March 2013 CHOICES SA - Energy Access for Improved Rural Livelihoods ENERGY TRAINING WORKSHOP ENERGY EFFICIENCY
  2. 2. What is Energy Efficiency? • Energy efficiency is "using less energy to provide the same service“ - • Something is more energy efficient if it delivers more services for the same energy input, or the same services for less energy input – IEA: tp://
  3. 3. What is Energy Efficiency – Steps? Step 2 - Efficient appliances Step 3 -Switching to more efficient fuel e.g. electricity to gas Step 1 - Change behavior
  4. 4. WHICH ELECTRICITY USE IS MOST EXPENSIVE? Typical Household Electricity Cost (2012 BCRM Tariff (Prepaid) - MONTH Appliance Watts Hours used Days used kWh /Units Rand per month % of Total Use 1xEnergy saver light 11 5 30 1.7 R1.29 1.2% 1XTV (B&W) 35 6 30 7 R5.32 5.1% 1xIron 1000 4 6 24 R18.24 17.6% 1xKettle 1000 0.5 30 15 R11.4 11.0% 1xHotplate 1000 1 25 25 R19 18.3% 1xRegular light 100 5 30 15 R11.4 11.0% 1xSmall refrigerator 250 6.5 30 49 R37.24 35.8% Total without FBE 136.7 R103.89 Total with FBE 86.7 R65.89 1 2
  5. 5. Step 1 - No Cost Options for saving energy • Turn geyser temperature down to 60o Celsius • Use less hot water – water heater biggest user • Switch off equipment when not in use • Reduce excessive heating or cooling in house • Only include the amount of water needed when heating water in a Kettle • Physically turn off appliance switches or at the wall (e.g. a TV or Hi-Fi), instead of leaving them on stand-by • Make one-pot meals and keep lids on pots and /or bring foods to the boil quickly on the “high” setting, then turn the heat down to “simmer” to finish cooking • Thick frost on chilling panels reduces a fridge and freezer’s cooling ability
  6. 6. Step 2 – Install Low Cost Options 1. Install efficient lighting - CFL (R30 to R40) Save 70% of lighting cost and 10 times longer 2. Install an efficient shower head (R150 – R250) Save 30 to 40% of water heating cost Save water 3. Insulate the geyser (R200 – R300) Save 20 to 25% water heating cost
  7. 7. An opportunity to invest FEB 2012 INVESTMENT OPTIONS R200 to R250
  8. 8. BackgroundWhat is it: • The Wonderbag is a non-electric, heat-retention cooker that allows food that has been brought to a boil on a stove or fire, to continue cooking for hours after it has been removed from the direct fuel source. How does it work: • The Wonderbag’s heat retention properties the retains the heat to allow the food to continue cooking without the use of additional cooking fuel. • Each Wonderbag comes with a recipe book containing instructions. • Bring your food to the boil, place in the bag, leave for the recommended time open to serve.
  9. 9. Improved cook stoves - Efficient and clean burning cooking
  10. 10. Traditional Cooking Traditional energy source and use – Not efficient
  11. 11. Improved cook stoves - Efficient and clean burning cooking Key features compared to an open fire: uses at least 50% less wood/charcoal, cooks 2-4 times quicker, produces 70% less smoke 50% less greenhouse gases Example – “EcoZoomStove” Marketed by Restio Energy SA Low Cost Efficient Stoves cost: R150 to R300
  12. 12. Environmental friendly briquettes & cook stoves – from biomass sources More Clean energy efficient burning using briquettes Making briquettes using biomass waste from area – in community
  13. 13. Invest to Save Options 1. Install a solar water heater 2. In stall ceiling 3. Insulate the ceiling/ roof
  14. 14. Example An efficient fuel for cooking Liquid Petroleum Gas – switch from electricity or paraffin Step 3 – Switch to More Energy Efficient Fuels
  15. 15. Gas for Cooking Option
