South Africa has about a quarter of the world’s best sunlight of all land mass (around 25% of the highest category of insolation, i.e. solar power potential). This national resource, as well as bountiful wind, ocean, sustainable biomass and locally relevant micro-hydro energy is ever present, but effectively ignored. The enormous socioeconomic value that can be realised by capitalising upon our renewable energy resources, at all levels, demands clear and urgent action.
