While Eskom’s power stations fail to meet emmission standards, entrepreneurs are developing the first wind farm in South Africa’s Mpumalanga coal belt (both pictures taken today). Crowding these kinds of investments into the region could kickstart a just energy transition

Eskom’s power stations are not compliant with minimal emission standards in terms of the Air Quality Act. Environmental groups in South Africa are increasingly professional and well resourced, and they’re winning court cases. Huge cost implications

Meridian Economics is one of South Africa’s sharpest and most innovative consultancies operating in the infrastructure and energy policy, regulatory and corporate finance space. They’re hiring. Great opportunity to contribute to the energy transition

Way to go. I already drive an electric scooter to work. I crave a Tesla model 3. The transition to electric is going to happen faster than we imagine. Then I’m going to have to figure how to convert my B122s to electric. I have 2, so I can experiment while keeping one original

What I don’t get about Mkhwebane is that she continually underestimates strength of Minister Pravin Gordhan. He survived brutal apartheid torture. He’ll see off this Zuma-faction fight back & she’ll be toast. Tragic undermining of Public Protector office

My 51 year old car turned its odometer from 99999 miles back to 00000 today. 2nd or 3rd time? Not sure, as I’ve not had this car from new. I do all the maintenance myself. Still going strong. Now for Eskom 😊🧐

ICYMI: Cape Town is tapping into the Green Pharma Industry by earmarking a vacant plot of land to be used solely for medical cannabis production. This will create hundreds of jobs and uplift the local economy.
