Eskom capacity building and benchmark study

Balmorel: Power system model | October 2021 - June 2022

As a part of the Energy Partnership Programme between South Africa and Denmark, Ea Energy Analyses is carrying out Balmorel training for the Eskom modelling group.

The objective is to build capacity to analyse the South African power sector for integration of renewable energy and enhance cost effective and reliable security of supply. This is achieved using the Balmorel modelling tool.

The training consists of 2 one-week physical training sessions in Johannesburg alongside several online workshops.

Following from the training, Ea is starting and setting-up a benchmark Balmorel model together with Eskom that can be directly compared to Eskom’s Plexos model to achieve a benchmark.

The project runs from October 2021 to June 2022.
