SA Urged to Invest in Renewable Energy

The government is not fast-tracking investments in renewable energy, but is instead pushing forward with unsustainable, unaffordable plans for nuclear expansion, argues Greenpeace Africa

As rolling blackouts leave many South Africans in the dark, Greenpeace Africa says the government is not fast-tracking investments in renewable energy, but is instead pushing forward with unsustainable, unaffordable plans for nuclear expansion which would deliver too little, too late, and at far too high a price.

Greenpeace Africa spokesperson, Mbong Akiy Fokwa Tsafack, points out that South Africa is in the midst of a crushing energy crisis - one of the worst to date.

Tsafack states that, “The country's state-owned utility Eskom is presently struggling to meet power demands, and has battled rolling stage three blackouts for months as a consequence of decades of under investment in energy infrastructure.”
