A Just Energy Transition

Ownership in the energy sector is a controversial subject, yet one that must beaddressed if we are to develop a Just Energy Transition (JET) plan.

Greetings from Project 90 in 2018!

Being the nature lover that I am, I have always believed in our systems as being a series of self- organizing, self-regenerating components inextricably connected to each other. As we – humans – are unable to stand on the outside and dominate our Earth system, I feel we are firmly embedded within them, part of the giant web of life. It was John Muir (1838-1914) who said “When we try to pick out anything by itself, we find it hitched to everything else in the Universe.”

For 2018, Project 90 is hitching it’s wagon to a ‘star’ – the dream of a sustainable, equitable low-carbon future where people are valued and earth systems preserved. In order to make this a reality, we are focusing our energies and efforts in advocating for a participatory, transparent Just Energy Transition and we are partnering with other civil society organisations, youth and community leaders to inspire and mobilize society towards this goal.

Follow our progress on Facebook or join one of our Round Table Discussions taking place in the coming months and join the movement!

Project 90’s YouLead 2018 Initiative
When Project 90 by 2030 first arrived on the scene in 2007, we set up Carbon-Cutting Clubs in high schools in the Western Cape, Gauteng and KwaZulu Natal with the aim of reducing the carbon footprints of the top South African schools and – by default – the learners’ homes. This project was successful to an extent but we found that, because motivated learners and teachers would come and go, consistency was a real challenge. Thus, in 2012, the Carbon-Cutting Clubs evolved into Leadership Clubs. Six years later in 2018, the Leadership Clubs have again evolved into a brand new initiative – YouLead.

Renewable Energy Back On Track In SA, But Still Lots To Do
By Richard Halsey

On the 4th April, after nearly 2 years of delays, the National Renewable Energy (RE) programme got back on track with the signing of overdue power purchase agreements recently. This signifies a move towards a higher proportion of electricity (at utility scale) coming from sources such as wind and solar that are cleaner than coal, which currently dominates supply through Eskom.
