Embedded Power generation has become a priority and vital factor to sustainability for businesses in South Africa. Consideration to piped natural gas allows different types of solutions to be explored, such as managing energy resource supply, the viability and efficiency utilizing the source to maximum benefit.
We have seen more movement across the board in CHP (Combined Heat and Power) where gas combustion is used for electricity generation, heat from exhaust heat exchanger and the heat used for space heating as well as extracted heat processed through absorption chilling for cooling, giving you CCHP (Combined Cooling, Heat and Power). Further benefits that could be explored are these flu gas’s, which can be utilised and Co² captured for cleaning and an extra revenue stream or internal applications.
Egoli Gas piped gas offer a breach to the energy growth barrier with a delivery method that eliminates extra storage and delivery costs. These benefits also provide a series of features portraying our enhanced focus on safety, pipeline integrity and operations excellence.
Egoli Gas have significant CAPEX invested into the Northern parts of Johannesburg, identified as growth regions. Government licensed or granted approval on embedded power generation of up to 10MW without ministerial approval.

Our parent company Reatile Group’s motto is “We are growing”, our growing popularity backs this statement. Natural Gas is a significant resource in ensuring the reduction of CO2 emissions of up to 50% less than coal, inevi-tably reducing carbon footprint opportunities to the customer base. Ultimately with piped natural gas, including initial CAPEX, it still provides a positive business case to companies and similarly increasing the bottom line with a more cost effective alternative. Unlike other fuel sources, Piped Natural Gas combusts up to 95%.
