South Africa - SA and Denmark sign energy co-operation deal

Agreement aims at providing wind energy solutions to South Africa in light of its energy crisis

South Africa and Denmark signed an energy co-operation agreement on wind energy yesterday. The agreement was signed by Minerals and Energy Minister Buyelwa Sonjica and Danish Foreign Affairs Minister Per Stig Moller at a wind energy seminar in Pretoria.

The agreement aims at providing wind energy solutions to South Africa in light of its energy crisis.

Sonjica said South Africa needed to grow its wind-power capacity as this was the world's fastest-growing energy source and provided more jobs than electric power stations.

She added that South Africa had the technical potential for wind energy.

This presented an investment opportunity for achieving the 2013 target of producing 10 000 gigawatts of energy in South Africa. Sonjica said South Africa was a "late player" in wind technology, and urged South Africans to continue saving electricity.
