Solar Water Heating

Draft strategic framework and implementation plan for South African national solar water
The next six months will see a watershed of activity in the solar water heating industry, as role-players gear up to meet the target of rolling out one-million solar water heaters (SWHs) by 2014, which was reaffirmed by Minister of Energy Dipuo Peters, in October, in her medium-term Budget speech.
Renewable Energy Market Transformation Brief
The Renewable Energy Market Transformation Project (REMT) is a GEF/World Bank funded project through the Department of Minerals and Energy (DME). The REMT project was launched to help South Africa eliminate barriers to renewable energy development as it strives to reduce the country’s greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions and reach the renewable energy target of at least 10,000 GWh contribution to final energy consumption by 2013
