LESOTHO, REVIEW OF THE TRANSMISSION AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS

LESOTHO, REVIEW OF THE TRANSMISSION AND DISTRIBUTION SYSTEMS

Maseru, 14 September 2020,

 

GESTO is currently developing the Renewable Energy Grid Integration Studies (REGIS) for Lesotho, an assignment funded by the African Development Bank.

The project objective is to study and evaluate the impacts on the transmission and distribution networks of variable renewable energy generation and to establish the level of absorption, both quantitatively and in relative terms of such intermittent renewable energy generation in the LEC power system in the medium to long-term.

Despite the constraints inflicted by the global Covid-19 pandemic the activities remain underway remotely, with the continuous support of the Lesotho Electricity Company. In the past month of July a new milestone was achieved with the delivery of the Technical Review of the Transmission and Distribution Systems.

Despite the current global restrictions and limitations due to the Covid-19 pandemic., the project should wrap-up by the end of the current year.
