Adenco established a renewable energy division for which we have large scale plans and dreams.
South Africa is addressing a number of challenges in its energy sector, including the need to meet growing demand, as well as diversifying its energy mix away from coal, which accounts for 75% of installed capacity.
The South African Government has decided that the renewable energy sector should have a key role in its medium to long-term energy planning program. The government's Integrated Resource Program (IRP) 2010, a 20-year national energy plan, foresees a big increase in the country's energy capacity and a gradual introduction of renewable energy sources until they account for 30% of electricity generated in South Africa by 2030.
