The South African Generator and Transformer Industry


The generator and transformer industry includes all technologies which generate and move electricity and the encompassing digital platforms which monitor and manage these increasingly complex power networks. The industry has since 2015 suffered the effects of an economy weakened by reduced investment and operational expenditure in the traditional power industry, which is represented by Eskom and municipalities, as well as in agriculture, construction, manufacturing and mining, and energy, that are all key industries which utilise industry products and services. However the industry has benefitted from rising government, corporate, industrial, agricultural and private investment in renewable energy installations.


Disruption


The energy industry is undergoing disruption and is in transition on multiple fronts driven by new technologies, evolving customer needs and the need to improve grid resilience and flexibility. Renewable power generation is growing, while almost half of the world’s electrical utilities which use thermal coal as feedstock are reported to be unprofitable. The energy industry faces challenges to the traditional one-directional way in which energy is centrally produced, transmitted and distributed and witnessing the evolution of energy networks into decentralised, decarbonised and digitalised systems. The evolution of the smart grid is challenging giants of the industry and allowing new investors, developers, operators and technology providers to enter the industry.
