South Africa Doubles Plans for Renewable Energy on Program Wins

South Africa will next year announce plans that will almost double the amount of power it intends to draw from renewable sources after the success of a program to spur more clean generation, the Department of Energy said.

An additional 3,600 megawatts will be sought in accordance with the country’s integrated resources plan, and will include an additional 200 megawatts from smaller black-owned producers, the Pretoria-based ministry said in an e-mailed statement today.
