RENEWABLE ENERGY
TODAY

The South African renewable-energy landscape

  • From 2013 to 2020, 2 495 MW of wind, 2 032 MW of large-scale solar PV and 500 MW of concentrated solar power (CSP) became operational in RSA.
  • Eskom, stated in November 2020 that it was planning to reach carbon neutrality by 2050.
  • South Africa has the best renewable energy plan amongst Nigeria, South Africa and Egypt.

Our power potential

  • In 2020, 5.6% of system load was supplied by wind, solar PV & CSP in RSA.
  • In 2020, the Variable renewable energy (VRE) fleet of 5.0 GW (wind, solar PV, CSP) reduced peak demand slightly but reduced high demand hours by roughly 70%.
  • Flexibility needs are not yet significantly increased with the existing VRE fleet in 2020.

Global energy industry realities

  • Renewable energy has so far been the energy source most resilient to Covid 19 lockdown measures.
  • In Q1 2020, the global use of renewable energy was 1.5% higher than in Q1 2019.
  • Renewable power is growing impressively in many parts of the world, but it still isn’t where it needs to be to put us on a path to reaching net-zero emissions by mid-century.

OUR INSATIABLE
NEED FOR POWER

From load shedding debates to hydraulic fracturing disputes; the issue of electrical power consumption and production in South Africa has always been a contentious and volatile subject. Talks of sustainable and affordable energy solutions regarding our economy have been in discussion and up for debate for years. Now, with recent technological developments and further scientific studies, we’re finally stepping up to the challenge with viable solutions in the renewable energy sector.

The global trend in forward thinking countries has been for a future of renewable energy and lower emission consumption. With our global ranking of third in attractiveness for concentrated solar power, and a ranking of seventh for solar photovoltaic technology in terms of investment attractiveness, South Africa is a global favourite for renewable energy production.
