The unexpected job market being created by renewable energy
SOLA Future Energy’s Dom Wills discusses the renewable energy economic and workforce development opportunities in South Africa.
JOHANNESBURG – The renewable energy sector could provide an unexpected but much-needed jobs boost to South Africa’s employment levels, as the sector continues to mature.
This is the view of renewables experts SOLA Future Energy , the company that replaced Robben Island’s diesel-powered electricity supply with a grid driven by solar energy. This work earned them a nomination in the recent Vision2030 awards, a contest that recognises organisations, enterprises and individuals that are aligned with the government’s Nine-Point Plan to boost economic growth, and the National Development Plan (NDP).
