Renewable Energy and a Just Transition
The Renewable Energy campaign through its piloted projects has attempted to showcase the effectiveness of renewable energy technologies. It has used this as an educational tool within disadvantaged communities, demonstrating that i.e. solar is clean, safe and easy to install and, leads to major cost savings. Women Energy and Climate Change Forum members help maintain the project sites which also include an on-site biodigester and water harvesting tanks linked to the gardens
The issues of Renewable Energy and Climate Change are dealt with by the Sustainable Energy and Climate Change Project.
The Sustainable Energy and Climate Change Project seeks a just transition to renewable energy and a low-carbon economy. The SECCP works to promote local and global environmental and social justice on sustainable energy and climate change issues, by changing policies and behaviour through building the awareness and capacity of civil society and government, to achieve an equitable future with respect for all. The SECCP is a campaign within Earthlife Africa Jhb.
