White Paper in South Africa
A ‘White Paper’ on energy was released in December, 1998. It states that South Africa has very attractive solar and wind resources, and that renewable applications are the least-cost energy service in many cases, “more so when social and environmental costs are taken into account.” Renewable sources make up a “small but rapidly increasing” share of energy. South Africa has installed 500,000 m2 of solar water heater panels, but this is less than 1% of the potential market. There are 5 MW of PV systems and 280,000 water-pumping windmills, with 60 MW of small-scale hydro.
