On 30 November 2018, 100 MW of new solar power was added to the grid, as the Karoshoek Solar One project went live in Upington, Northern Cape.  This project is the latest success of Government’s Renewable Energy Independent Power Producer Procurement Programme (REIPPPP) which mobilises private capital and expertise to provide renewable energy to Eskom. With the current pressure on supply, this latest addition to the grid is especially welcomed.   

In July this year, Johannesburg based turnkey energy solutions company and certified installation partner, Hanonox (appointed by KAS Consulting), completed the 312 kWp solar project for major South African hardware manufacturer, Eureka DIY Solutions.

A Commitment Statement drafted by members of the Wind energy industry has been adopted at an Annual General Meeting of the South African Wind Energy Association (SAWEA). The statement sets out a vision for optimising the industry’s long-term investment in the physical, social, environmental and economic development of the country – beyond compliance.

Through its YouthBuild Academy, Saint-Gobain South Africa is addressing two key crises faced in South Africa: the rising numbers of unemployed youth as well as a decrease in the number of trained artisans within the construction industry.

Sustainability is the preservation of natural, social, and economic resources by means of innovative construction methods and conscious decisions throughout the lifecycle of designing, constructing, and operating a project.

Sian Cohen, business development manager and key account specialist of the Green Building Council South Africa, is to mentor the African winner and global finalist in the Royal Institution of Chartered Surveyors’ (RICS) Cities for our Future competition in their effort to take home the top prize of £50 000.
