Renewable energy in South Africa has the potential to create thousands of long-term sustainable jobs and ensure energy security in the future. Renewable energy is essential to South Africa as this clean source of energy has a much lower environmental impact than other conventional energy technologies. It is expected that the government’s new installed capacity targets for renewable energy capacity will make up over 40% of the new energy capacity by 2030; the biggest winners comprising wind and solar power.
South Africa has extensive, proven resources of renewable energy, especially in solar, wind, and wave energy and biomass production. Upington has been described as the most ideal site for solar energy in the world.
