05/11/2022 09:25 05/11/2022 10:00 South Africa at the Crossroads – balancing the Just Transition with South Africa’s communities and the the economic opportunities of the evolving mining & energy sectors. What does the latest progress toward a Just Transition – and the outcomes of COP26 - mean for operators and investors in the energy & mining sector? 
  • Coal related energy accounts for 45% of employment, 60% of GDP, 70% of export earnings. How is the importance of coal to specific communities being balanced with the need to reduce global emissions?
  • South Africa does have a unique opportunity to develop a significant green hydrogen economy, given the country’s material green energy comparative advantages. The development of a pragmatic incentive based green hydrogen roadmap, strategy and implementation done in partnership with the private sector could be a game changer.
  • The Critical Roadmap: implementation of effective policy measures to accelerate the adoption of the green hydrogen economy and renewable energies into the SA energy mix, while providing mechanisms to manage the Just Energy Transition and the declining role of coal over time.
