South Africa Month on Energy

October 22, 2013

By Dr. Tyra OldhamLANDsds Sustainable Voice News

Consider, the resources of Africa and the opportunity for global exploration to uncover and produce energy solutions.  The opportunity is in identifying strategies integrating gas and renewables as the competent advantage.  The work of thinkers and applicators collaborate in “South Africa: Global Month of Action on Energy – People Demand Shift in Energy Generation” for a sustainable future.

All Africa reports, “1,500 environmental activists took to the streets of Johannesburg today to protest Anglo American Thermal Coal and Vedanta Zinc International’s plans for another coal-fired power station in the Waterberg District, Limpopo. The is a water scarce area and communities in the area already experience the effects of coal mining and existing coal-fired power stations: negative health impacts, stress on water supplies and only a handful of long-term local jobs. Civil society organisations therefore oppose the companies’ plans and demand an immediate shift towards renewable energy sources.”

The shift to clean energy for Africa is responsive to the energy-water nexus.  The shift in “Global Energy Mix in Africa is News Worldwide” can paint a big picture on the shift to renewables and clean solutions responsive to countries environment.

It was cited that “Neither Anglo nor Vedanta appear willing to understand the recent findings of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change’s 5th Assessment Report: the impacts of coal-fired power stations on global climate change and the resulting threats to local communities.”

Yes, there are companies entangled in the energy-climate change impact but, the opportunity is to establish standards that structure policy or plans that enable company-wide roll outs of responsive programs for environmental effective efficiency. The activism today is to strategise change that model sustainable outcomes.
