South Africa gets a fair share of sun, from what I've heard. Also, with good wind resources to boot and technology that is clearly ready to scale, a new report released by Greenpeace South Africa shows how exactly the country can go 100% renewable. The Energy [R]evolution report "is a detailed and practical blueprint for cutting carbon emissions, replacing fossil fuels and nuclear power with renewable energy, and growing the economy," Greenpeace announced this week. "It is one of the most comprehensive plans to resolve the country’s need for energy security and a sustainable energy future, ever."
