DDCW Energy Optimisation

The aim of this project is to perform an analysis of the energy consumption of 4 children’s homes that are currently being run by the Durban District Child Welfare (DDCW) in the KwaZulu-Natal. This project aims to assist the DDCW to reduce the amount spent on energy as the recent rise in the cost of electricity is impacting negatively in their already limited budget.

In this project, a group of students will perform an analysis of energy usage in 4 DDCW children’s homes to quantify energy usage, identify areas where electricity could be utilized more efficiently. The DDCW is also planning on the implementation of alternate energy (solar geysers, gas based cooking), and the team working on the project will advise on this. A good understanding of energy management and alternative energy system implementation is a preferred requirement.
