A renewable energy powered street light which provides off-grid lighting.  Powered by a combination system of a vertical axis wind turbine, a solar panel, and a rechargeable battery system.  Can be used in residential areas as the wind turbine is quiet.

The CSIR has been undertaking research and development on lithium manganese nickel oxide (LMNO) based cathode materials. The research focuses on enhancing safety, reducing production costs, increasing battery capacity, higher voltage and increased lifecycle. The laboratory process optimisation...

The UCT invention describes a method and point of care test for diagnosing symptomatic and asymptomatic sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and bacterial vaginosis (BV). STIs and BV cause inflammation in the female genital tract. In resource-limited settings, BV and STIs are managed according...

The Solar Tracker has been developed at the Cape Peninsula University of Technology. it is an efficient mechanism for positioning a solar collector in tracking the sun. This device is adept to intermittent adjustment of the position of a solar energy collection surface, ensuring that...

SUNSPOT is a solar thermal power plant with rock-bed storage, containing a unique set of patented and individually licensable Stellenbosch University technologies. The SUNSPOT cycle is appropriate and efficient for generating, storing and deploying solar power in arid regions.
 

The Solar Heat Engine seeks to provide an off-grid technology to combat the dire need for electricity in most regions and rural areas in South Africa. It will also allow people living in urban areas, the opportunity to go completely off-grid. The system harnesses energy from the sun and is able...

The multi-mode composite antenna developed by researchers at Stellenbosch University achieves near hemispherical coverage with reduced power gain variation and improved polarisation discrimination capabilities when compared to conventional dual-polarised dipole antennas. This is currently the...

Aeroswift is a collaboration project between the CSIR-National Laser Centre (NLC) and Aerosud ITC to develop a prototype titanium additive manufacturing (AM) machine tool capable of producing aircraft certifiable parts in a large envelope configuration.  Aeroswift technology is based on the...

The SNC BEST ball electrospinning technology is a high throughput electrostatic fibre spinning technology used to produce nanofibres from various polymers and blends of polymers. 

In the ball electrospinning process, small balls (2,5cm diameter) are rotated through a polymer solution,...

This is used to eliminate control reversal, particularly of aircraft ailerons.
