South Africa-Low Carbon Growth Strategy

From Open Energy Information


"To facilitate the implementation of the Long-Term Mitigation Scenario developed by the Government of South Africa in 2006, the South Africa study focuses on building capacity for energy efficiency and demand-side management solutions. By providing a platform of international experiences and best practises, the study explores approaches and mechanisms that enable policy and regulatory frameworks, identify institutional arrangements, explore financing mechanisms to help cope with the energy crisis. South Africa’s study funded an international peer review of the Long-Term Mitigation Scenario. The top mitigation priorities were identified as: industrial energy efficiency, renewable energy, nuclear energy, modal shift through improved public transportation, and improved vehicle efficiency.
