The results of the 2018 International Coastal Clean-up, which took place on Saturday, 15 September 2018, have just been released.

Climate change is a real problem, it is not just going to go away simply by looking the other way. It is a serious issue that needs to be recognised and addressed. The issue, although fundamentally and most importantly an environmental one, also has a ripple effect which negatively impacts businesses and the economic climate at large.

An increasingly popular trend over the past few years in the commercial property sector is the installation of solar technology. This is largely being driven by technological innovation which has resulted in greater cost efficiencies and increased demand as the cost of electricity in South Africa continues to skyrocket.

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.
