Renewable Energy in South Africa

RSA Target : 26 030 MW by 2030
(As of Nov 2021)

This document got started because I was frustrated by the lack of information about the progress that South Africa has been making/ not making on installing renewable energy. So I started collecting my own. And I was blown away.

This is still in the very early days of collecting data, and already I have listed a total of
MW of renewable energy. And before anybody says “Buuut, the sun doesn’t shine at night!!”: I have counted a total of
MWh of storage so far. Further, there is a total of
MW of Wind power installation. And the wind blows at all times of the day.

Summary by Energy Type

This contains a searchable list of energy projects in RSA. Search by country, province, or town.
Or check which developer has the most projects, or the most Megawatt.
This is a list of possible ways to store energy, it is very, very early in the building of this table. It is on storage energy types in general, not implementation projects

I have not yet searched for any announcements of electricity to be generated as part of the embedded generation now allowed to mines and large industrial companies. Nor do I take into account “small” projects, like those done by .

And finally, in the fullness of time, I will get to Energy Storage systems implemented in South Africa.
