Improving health and reducing costs through renewable energy in South Africa

Air pol­lu­tion, pri­mar­i­ly from coal-fired pow­er plants, is one of the main impacts that the ener­gy sec­tor has on the envi­ron­ment and human health. These pol­lu­tants have many neg­a­tive impacts, of which those of great­est con­cern include heart dis­eases, lung can­cer, strokes and chron­ic obstruc­tive pul­monary dis­eases (WHO, 2016). The con­se­quences of such dis­eases include […]

Consumer savings through solar PV self-consumption in South Africa

The study quan­ti­fies the expen­di­ture sav­ings that may be achieved by res­i­den­tial and com­mer­cial con­sumers in South Africa when installing rooftop solar pho­to­volta­ic (PV) sys­tems with the aim of con­sum­ing most of the result­ing elec­tric­i­ty direct­ly (hence­forth termed self-con­­­sump­­­tion). The analy­sis is based on sce­nar­ios for the future devel­op­ment of PV, includ­ing bat­tery costs, the […]
