Microgrid project wins international energy efficiency award



Eaton has won the Hannover Messe Industrial Energy Efficiency Award for its microgrid system installed at its Wadeville headquarters and manufacturing facility near Johannesburg. This newly-created award is dedicated to identifying and awarding prizes to outstanding industrial processes and applications based on their energy efficiency, targeting providers as well as users of energy-efficient solutions for production processes. Efficient energy use is a matter of importance for all industries, but it is especially important for the industrial manufacturing and energy industries. The Hannover Messe Industrial Energy Efficiency Award gives energy efficiency the platform that its importance merits. The microgrid in Wadeville includes the first-ever deployment of the company’s xStorage energy storage system in Africa. This solution strengthens the energy supply for its Wadeville site, thereby reducing demand on the national grid and on regional infrastructure.
