S. Africa Wants Realistic Renewable Energy Targets

August 30, 2002 [SolarAccess.com] South Africa wants the World Summit on Sustainable Development (WSSD) to set targets for Renewable Energy sources, but these should be realistic, Minister of Minerals and Energy Phumzile Mlambo-Ngcuka said Thursday. One of the issues still not agreed upon in the WSSD’s Plan of Implementation was a proposal that 15 percent of energy should by 2010 come from renewable sources. South Africa did not want the WSSD to refrain from setting a target, but thought it should be realistic so it would be adhered to.
