South Africa has been identified as a country where there is great potential for solar energy due to optimal radiation patterns. The aim of this roadmap is to plot a clear pathway assessing the steps that South Africa should take to ramp up its use of this renewable energy source. The target is for 42% of new electricity generation capacity in South Africa to come from renewable sources – excluding hydropower – by 2030.
