A new world energy economy is emerging. The question is, can the world run on renewable energy to accelerate the transition to a healthier, more secure and climate-safe future. It is said that we need to build a smarter, more flexible system that maximises the use of variable sources of renewable energy. South Africa can produce energy from solar power, natural gas, wind power, anaerobic digestion etc. How does this affect the business space?
