Assessment of Renewable Energy Opportunities in Gauteng and development of Gauteng’s RE Investment Strategy
Lindon Corporation undertook an assessment of renewable energy (RE) resources in Gauteng, South Africa, on behalf of the Gauteng Economic Development Agency (GEDA). RE resources that were identified as having potential included gas from waste (landfill and treatment plants), solar (PV and SWH), wind and small hydro-electric schemes (aqueduct-based).
Lindon also assessed Gauteng’s relative strength as a centre for RE research, development and investment.
The end result was a RE Investment Strategy (REIS) that, once implemented, would position Gauteng as the centre of RE excellence in South Africa.
Lindon assisted GEDA with the initial implementation of the REIS and the appointment of a RE Manager for GEDA.
